This intermediate level workshop will help ensure the financial stability of your water system while providing safe, quality drinking water at fair rates. We will focus on how systems can select rate setting objectives and match those with appropriate rate structures.

Attendees will learn how to:
1. Develop rate setting objectives
2. Determine the cost of providing water service
3. Anticipate changes in revenues year-to-year by changes in demand
4. Measure the affordability of rates for all of your customers
5. Create rate structures that promote water conservation or promote water use

This workshop is appropriate for any community water system that charges customers for water consumption. It is designed for drinking water system managers, clerks, treasurers, board members, and others who budget and/or set rates.

Trainer: Glenn Barnes, Associate Director – The Environmental Finance Center at The University of North Carolina
