Upcoming Training


When: Wednesday, January 20, 2021 (3:00PM - 4:00PM EST)

Hosted by Center for Technology & Training @ Webinar

Rates are the primary way that most drinking water utilities generate revenue.  Once water utilities have calculated their financial needs for this year and beyond, they are faced with a number of policy decisions on how best to structure rates to meet that financial need.  This webinar will use real life examples from water utilities to describe these policy decisions and how to best communicate rate changes to the public.



When: Tuesday, February 9, 2021 @ 8:00AM EST - Wednesday, February 10, 2021 @ 12:00PM EST

Hosted by Center for Technology & Training @ Webinar

What are all of the costs of running a drinking water utility?  This webinar will help water systems recognize the costs related to operations and capital needs, including costs that systems often overlook.  The webinar will also identify which costs are tied to water production and will describe how costs change over time.  The objective of this webinar is for water systems to be able to calculate their financial needs for the next five years.  The webinar will also summarize the state and federal loan and grant programs that are available to drinking water utilities.
