This dashboard is designed to assist utility managers and local officials in benchmarking residential water and wastewater rates against multiple attributes, including utility finances, system characteristics, customer base socioeconomic conditions, and geography. The Georgia Environmental Finance Authority funds this resource for utilities in Georgia. The UNC EFC created and updated the dashboard annually between 2007 and 2023, visualizing rates and financial data for over 90% of the local government utilities in the state of Georgia.
The current dashboard displays water and wastewater rates as of January 2023. The 2023 rates survey is led by the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government, partnering with the UNC EFC. Contact the UNC EFC if you have any questions or would like more information.
