Sustainable water and wastewater services are critical to providing the American public with clean and safe water and helping ensure the environmental, economic and social sustainability of the communities these utilities serve. Many utilities across the country face tremendous challenges, such as aging infrastructure, climate changes, population growth and competing resource priorities within the communities they serve.
As more and more utilities assume leadership roles related to community sustainability, resource recovery and conservation, sustainable economic development and climate change, they must concurrently focus on long-term sustainability and brining about meaningful change in their organizations and communities.
This course looks at these issues and provides some insight and guidance based on the effective utility management concept.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
