Local governments are the primary investors in water infrastructure. Sound financial management practices are fundamental to the utility’s ability to sustain the operations of the water system. Without sufficient revenues and adequate control of finances, it is very difficult to ensure continued delivery of safe and reliable water service to customers.

This webinar will outline best practices in setting fair and viable water rates, and options for utilities to finance capital improvement projects to ensure your community’s drinking water system remains safe and sustainable.

Presenter: Nicholas Willis, Program Manager, Wichita State University Environmental Finance Center
