This workshop helped to ensure the financial stability of your water system while providing safe, quality drinking water at fair rates. Topics included aspects of financial management and planning of a water system fund including rates and rate setting, controlling costs, planning for capital expenses, accessing external funding (loans and grants), tracking and benchmarking financial performance, and other Enterprise Fund issues that small water systems face.

Participants learned how to:
1. Set aside funds for future repairs, security upgrades, and regulatory compliance
2. Set fair rates that cover costs
3. Locate external funding sources (loans and grants)
4. Monitor financial performance

This workshop was designed for local government drinking water system managers, clerks, treasurers, elected officials, and others who budget and/or set rates.
