Running a small system can be challenging. Along with meeting regulatory obligations and satisfying customer expectations, you may have issues with aging infrastructure, lack of personnel, and limited financial resources. Furthermore, small systems often cost more to operate per capita than large systems because of economy of scale.
Two strategies to address these challenges is to work with other utilities or consider regionalization options. In this workshop, we will discuss various regionalization models and approaches to collaboration including:
• Informal information sharing
• Sharing personnel
• Leveraging shared purchasing power
• How to prepare your utility for knowledge or technology transfer
• Regionalization options
Attendees will be invited to ask questions throughout the webinar.
