Many rural and small water and wastewater systems throughout the country struggle with various issues, which may include aging or inadequate infrastructure, difficulties recruiting or retaining qualified staff, growing or establishing financial reserves and setting rates that are reflective of their operational costs.
The need to adopt the ten key management areas, how to conduct a self-assessment of the key management areas, how to prioritize the key management areas and how to develop an improvement plan to address priority key management areas all will help rural and small systems to effectively operate in the current atmosphere.
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.
