Funding your AWIA Risk & Resilience Plan
What good is knowing your risks if you don’t have funding plans to solve them?
JP Joly of Waterworth, Andrew Ohrt and Daniel Groves of West Yost, and Greg Baird of Water Finance Research Foundation discuss AWIA Risk and Resilience Assessments and Emergency Response Plans — but most important, how to fund them.
Using Waterworth’s web-based, dynamic modeling features, the speakers explore several short and long-term funding scenarios, and discuss important related topics like cash reserves and debt service coverage ratio.
Water Finance & Management Interview
Rate Setting, Rate Maintenance and Communication
Water Finance and Management managing editor, Andrew Farr, interviews Waterworth CEO and co-founder, JP Joly, about rate setting, rate maintenance and communication.
Water and wastewater utilities are tasked with a multitude of financial challenges that can have enormous economic ramifications to the public.
With this in mind, how often should utilities look to raise rates? Can annual rate maintenance be done in a more efficient manner? And what about the importance of communication among stakeholders when it comes to setting affordable rates and taking a long-term approach to budgeting and financial planning?
Developing Cash Reserve Policies
This webinar discusses Waterworth’s white paper: Developing Cash Reserve Policies.
Cash reserves are funds that are set aside for varying purposes. They form a critical component of the financial sustainability and resiliency of organizations. They are a time-tested risk mitigation strategy that demonstrates a willingness to be prudent stewards of the systems that form the foundations of infrastructure-based services delivered by municipal governments and private sector utilities.
This webinar provides a comprehensive overview of cash reserves and drills down on the “how” of developing sound cash reserve policies.
