April 12, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

As demographic and economic patterns shift, utilities not only face a challenge providing clean and safe water services, but also must grapple with how to price their services affordably. In this 90-minute webinar, experts from the Environmental Finance Center Network will walk you through the basics of affordability, several self-assessment strategies for understanding water rate affordability, and how to prioritize affordability in utility decision-making. The webinar will feature a demonstration of the Southwest Environmental Finance Center’s Water Affordability Self-Assessment Tool (WASA) and the University of North Carolina’s updated Tableau based Affordability Assessment Tool.

Who should attend:

  • Managers, owners, and operators of water systems serving less than 10,000 people
  • Decision-makers for water utilities, including mayors, finance officers, utility managers, public works directors, city councilors, board members, tribal council members, and clerks
