Water Rates Workshop Presentations Now Available

Monday, February 02, 2015

During the Council’s recent water rates workshops, more than 150 attendees heard from a wide variety of experts on how water utilities can assure fiscal stability while still sending effective conservation signals and complying with state law. The workshops were designed for general managers and financial officers and were made possible with funding from the California Department of Water Resources. The workshop also presented a new, open-source water rate-setting tool. Workshop partners included the Alliance for Water Efficiency, Association of California Water Agencies, California Urban Water Agencies, California Association of Sanitation Agencies, and the Cal-Nevada Section of the American Water Works Association. The Council was further assisted with sponsorship from Group 3 members Dropcountr and WaterSmart Software.

For a complete list of speakers, and to view the presentations from both workshops, please click here or visit the Water Rates Workshop webpage.
