VA Training | Setting the Right Rates for Small Drinking Water Systems

October 6, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Description: This 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. This workshop is designed for water systems serving 10,000 or fewer people, especially targeting local government systems facing financial challenges. Information will be shared in lecture format, through interactive exercises, sharing of case examples, and by soliciting and answering participant system-specific questions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop rate setting objectives
  • Determine the cost of providing wastewater service
  • Anticipate changes in revenues year-to-year by changes in use
