This dashboard is designed to allow water and wastewater utilities assess their financial resilience to revenue losses during the COVID-19 pandemic or other periods of sudden revenue losses. Utilities input information about their unrestricted cash, which can be obtained from the latest audited financial statement, and anticipated percentage of revenue losses. The dashboard estimates how long the utility can supplement revenue losses with the unrestricted cash.
This dashboard is not a perfect assessment of the utility’s financial condition and should only be used as a guide. Unrestricted cash often has many uses for the utility, including paying for emergency expenses and thus will almost never be available exclusively to supplement revenue loss. Any numbers shown here should be considered an overestimate.View The Dashboard
