Rate Setting and Financial Planning for Water Utilities

Understand how to manage your rate setting process more efficiently.

Water and wastewater utility managers face a strikingly diverse set of challenges as they seek to develop and implement rates and charges sufficient to enable their utilities to provide reliable and high quality services to their communities. Rate-related aspects of their jobs sometimes can seem particularly difficult because these issues resist one-dimensional solutions, and instead require an integration of technical, managerial, strategic, and policy objectives. This topic will help water utility managers to manage their rate setting processes more effectively, and help allied professionals to provide more meaningful support when they play a role in a rate study project.
