This intermediate level workshop helped ensure the financial stability of attendees' water systems while providing safe, quality drinking water at fair rates. We focused on how systems can select rate setting objectives and match those with appropriate rate structures.

Attendees learned 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 their customers; 5. Create rate structures that promote water conservation or promote water use. 

This workshop was appropriate for any community water system that charges customers for water consumption. It was designed for drinking water system managers, clerks, treasurers, board members, and others who budget and/or set rates.

Trainer: Glenn Barnes: Associate Director The Environmental Finance Center at The University of North Carolina.
