Center of Non-Profit Excellence Webcast-Stormwater Utilities
From website: Stormwater Utilities: Reckoning the Cost Side of the Equation. Developing an effective stormwater utility demands an understanding of both the revenue and cost side of the equation. There are various, well-understood methodologies for the revenue and rate-setting side of the equation, but getting a good read on the actual costs of operating a program and implementing BMPs seems much more mysterious. How can a program developing or modifying a stormwater utility do a better job of honing actual costs, both today and into the future? This webcast will provide resources and case studies on this topic.
