BREC (Milton J. Womack Park)


This workshop will help ensure the financial stability of your water system while providing safe, quality drinking water at fair rates. Topics include financial management and planning of a water system fund including rates and rate setting, planning for capital expenses, and tracking and benchmarking financial performance. We will show how some of these financial best practices can facilitate in accessing external funding in the form of grants and loans.

You will learn how to:
1.  Assess and monitor financial performance
2.  Design appropriate rate structures and set fair rates that cover costs
3.  Plan to fund future capital costs
4.  Locate external funding sources (loans and grants)
