Setting the Right Rates for Your Water System - IEPA #11924

September 29, 2017
(registration starts at 8:30am)
McHenry, IL

This intermediate level workshop will help ensure the financial stability of your water system while providing safe, quality drinking water at fair rates.  We will focus on how systems can select rate setting objectives and match those with appropriate rate structures.

You will learn how to:
1. Develop rate setting objectives
2. Determine the cost of providing water service
3. Anticipate changes in revenues year to year by changes in demand
4. Measure the affordability of rates for all of your customers
5. Create rate structures that promote water conservation or promote water use

This workshop is appropriate for any community water system that charges customers for water consumption.  It is designed for  drinking water system managers, clerks, treasurers, board members, 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.
