Fox Lake, IL

Though many operational costs may be fixed costs, energy costs represent the largest controllable cost of providing water services. Energy can be as high as 40 percent of operating costs and is expected to increase 20 percent in the next 15 years. Now is the time to control energy costs.

You will learn how to:
  • conduct an energy audit and establish
    a baseline,
  • prioritize and implement energy
    efficiency projects,
  • calculate project payback and current performance, and
  • identify financing opportunities for
    energy projects.

The workshop will also include a review of the Northeast Illinois Water and Wastewater Rates Dashboard.

This workshop is designed for local government drinking water system managers, clerks, treasurers, elected officials, and others who budget and/or set rates.



The Smart Management for Small Water Systems program is administered by the Environmental Finance Center Network (EFCN), a university-based organization creating innovative solutions to the difficult how-to-pay issues of environmental protection and improvement. The program is brought to you in collaboration with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and affiliated sections.
