Water is a business! City Council and rural water district boards have a lot to consider: water pressure, meeting all federal and state regulations and standards, and making rates affordable. Your job is making the right choices about complex managerial, financial, and technical aspects of running a high quality water utility. It takes time to keep up on the laws, regulations, and rules. However, as a board/council member, you are personally responsible. Water is the foundation of your community’s jobs and future.

Like any business, there are risks and options, but is your board/council keeping them in mind? Boards/councils need to know the pros and cons concerning the managerial, financial, and technical decision about water. This training is designed to be an educational tool to assist board/council members in operating their water business.
