This dashboard is designed to assist utility managers and local officials with benchmarking residential water and wastewater rates against multiple attributes, including utility finances, system characteristics, customer base socioeconomic conditions, and geography. The EFC has surveyed nearly all of the utilities in the state and visualized their rates and multiple key financial performance indicators of the Enterprise Funds annually since 2005. This resource for utilities in North Carolina is funded by the Division of Water Infrastructure of the NC Department of Environmental Quality. Current dashboard displays water and wastewater rates as of January 2023, and FY2022 financial data.
