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 webinar, we will discuss various approaches to collaboration including:

  • Leveraging shared purchasing power
  • Informal information sharing
  • Equipment sharing
  • Sharing personnel
  • Preparing for emergencies
  • Consolidation
