About the Webcast: Stormwater Utilities: Reckoning the Cost Side of the Equation
Stormwater utilities continue to be one of the most promising means to build and sustain a local stormwater management program. Developing an effective stormwater utility demands an understanding of both the revenue and cost side of the equation. There are various, well-understood methodologies for the revenue and rate-setting side of the equation, but getting a good read on the actual costs of operating a program and implementing BMPs seems much more mysterious. With evolving BMP specifications and new innovative practices, developing reliable cost data can be tricky, as cost data are notoriously unreliable, and variable. How can a program developing or modifying a stormwater utility do a better job of honing actual costs, both today and into the future? This webcast will provide resources and case studies on this topic.
