Effective Water Utility Management (Live Webinar)PE

Jim Newton, P.E., DEE

Water and wastewater utilities across the country face common challenges. These include rising costs, aging infrastructure, increasingly stringent regulatory requirements, population changes, and a rapidly changing workforce. While many utility managers find themselves turning from one urgent priority to the next, others have systematically applied effective utility management approaches that have helped them improve their products and services, increase community support, and ensure a strong and viable utility long into the future.

Effective utility management can help water and wastewater utilities enhance the stewardship of their infrastructure, improve performance in many critical areas, and respond to current and future challenges. Addressing these challenges also requires ongoing collaboration between government, industry, elected officials, and other stakeholders.

This course is derived from a collaboration effort between
  • Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies (AMWA)
  • American Public Works Association (APWA)
  • American Water Works Association (AWWA)
  • National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA)
  • National Association of Water Companies (NAWC)
  • United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Water Environment Federation (WEF)
  • The text for this course is the final report prepared by the collaboration under the US EPA and titled, “Effective Utility Management: A Primer for Water and Wastewater Utilities.”

    This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials. All quiz questions are reviewed during the webinar. You are guaranteed to pass this quiz.

    Note to Webinar Attendees:

    Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.
