AWWA Sets Seminar on Service Rate-Making

On April 21-23, the American Water Works Association will host the Financial Management: Cost of Service Rate-Making seminar.

Financial management, capital finance planning, and rate setting have become critical tasks that demand reliable financial tools. This three-day course is AWWA’s best-selling seminar, and it uses time-honored strategies to teach attendees how to be precise and correct when setting rates.

Held in Savannah, Ga., the seminar will be a valuable opportunity for water utility staff. Attendees will learn to develop defendable policies that are fair, equitable, and objective; evaluate financial policies and rate impacts; and recover the full cost of service with their rates.

Seminar instructors are Thomas E. Gould, National Technical director of Finance and Rates, HDR Engineering, and David B. LaFrance, director of Finance, Denver Water.
