Many communities and water utilities are experiencing water revenue declines. In most cases, these same water providers have already streamlined their operations to minimize their expenditures. Additional expenditure reduction cannot take place without affecting the level of service they are providing. While the current economic conditions make it a difficult time to raise customer’s water bills, regulatory requirements and customer expectations may leave water utility managers, and ultimately the policy makers, with no choice. This webinar provides the tools a water utility manager needs to efficiently lay the ground work for a rate increase, and presents strategies to help sell it to the policy makers.
An outline of the presentation is as follows:
• Historical Review • Expenditure Analysis
• O&M Schedules and Reoccurring Cost Analysis
• Capital Improvement Program Integration
• Revenue Analysis • Water Conservation Considerations
• Rate Structure Development
• Rate Structure Comparisons and Recommendation
• Change in Average Water Bill
