Attendees of this interactive webinar learned about the Missouri Regulated Water Rates Dashboard, as well as information about benchmarks for sustainable rates and finances for their system. This Dashboard is the first to feature rates only from regulated water utilities using data provided by the Missouri Public Services Commission.

Dashboard Features:

  • Four benchmarking dials (rates comparison, conservation pricing signal, affordability, and cost recovery)
  • Rate increase simulation slider, with consumption ranging from 0-15,000 gallons
  • Meaningful comparison groups based on system characteristics, customer demographics, and geography
  • Edit Data or Add Utility function to use even if a system is not in the survey

The Water and Wastewater Rates Dashboard is a great tool to help utility managers, finance directors, council/board members and others evaluate their rates, benchmark rates with other utilities, and determine if utility rates are encouraging conservation and covering costs of operations and capital. It can also serve as a communications tool for explaining utility rates and finance concepts to a variety of audiences.
