Description: Running a small system can be challenging. Along with meeting regulatory obligations and satisfying customer expectations, you may have issues with aging infrastructure, lack of personnel, and limited financial resources. Furthermore, small systems often cost more to operate per capita than large systems because of economy of scale. This can further complicate operations. One strategy to address these challenges is to work with other utilities. In this workshop, we will discuss various approaches to collaboration including:

  • Informal information sharing
  • Sharing personnel
  • Leveraging shared purchasing power
  • Helping maintain regulatory compliance
  • How to prepare your utility for knowledge or technology transfer

Trainer: Elsemarie Mullins, Project Director, Environmental Finance Center at the University of North Carolina

Cost: Complimentary.
