One Water Webinar: Utility Strengthening Through Consolidation
January 16, 2019, 3:00pm ET
The high level of fragmentation in the water sector makes all the pressing issues communities face even more challenging. Aging infrastructure, soaring operating expenses, affordability for low-income customers, shifting population and demographic changes, and how to make systems more resilient in the face of a more uncertain climate are just some of the challenges to securing our nation’s water future. If every single one of the thousands of water, wastewater, or stormwater utilities had to find their own solutions to this list of challenges, the nation would never arrive at a sustainable water future for all. Perspectives and approaches to utility consolidation vary widely across communities. Join this webinar to learn how different communities have taken on principled consolidation efforts to achieve goals and establish the enabling conditions for One Water.
