Iowa Drinking Water Rate Setting Workshop Series

Posted By IAMU, Wednesday, September 18, 2019

October 15-18 at locations across the state

Your water rates are the most important source of revenue for your water system. Are your rates sufficient to cover the cost of providing water service today and into the future? And are your rates structured in a way to best meet the priorities of your community?

This free workshop will explore several important aspects of water system finance, including:

  • How to structure appropriate rates for your community
  • How to plan for the future
  • How to measure financial health
  • How to find available loans and grants.

Anyone involved in the financial management of your water system is invited to attend, including board members, town managers, budget and finance staff, utility managers, and operators. The workshop is geared toward small water systems. We welcome multiple attendees from the same community.

A day of your time, plus travel, and food expenses. There is no charge for the workshop itself

Glenn Barnes, Director, Water Finance Assistance
