GLRPPR Sector Resource: Moving Toward Sustainability: Sustainable and Effective Practices for Creating Your Water Utility Roadmap

Title:
Moving Toward Sustainability: Sustainable and Effective Practices for Creating Your Water Utility Roadmap

Abstract:
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 utilities serve. Utilities across the country face tremendous challenges, such as aging infrastructure, an aging workforce, increasing mandates, and competing priorities within the communities they serve. The purpose of this document is to assist utility leaders with implementing proven and effective practices over time to improve their operations and move toward sustainability, at a pace consistent with their needs and the needs of their communities. It provides utility leaders with a cohesive structure to help them address various challenges proactively and with confidence. The practices described in this document reflect the lessons learned and the practical experience utilities have derived as they have improved their operations. A utility can use this document to identify specific opportunities for improvement and draw on the example practices to create an individualized "roadmap" to more sustainable operations.
