EPA Finance Forum for Region 4 Small Systems

EPA’s Water Infrastructure Resiliency and Finance Center, in collaboration with the Environmental Finance Center at the University of North Carolina (UNC) and the Alabama Department of Environmental Management, is hosting a finance forum for small drinking water systems in Region 4. The forum will take place on July 26 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Marriott Shoals Hotel in Florence, Alabama.
The forum will help ensure the financial stability of water systems while providing safe, quality drinking water at fair rates. Topics include many aspects of financial management and planning of water system funding including rates and rate setting, controlling costs, planning for capital expenses, benchmarking financial performance, and collaboration between nearby small systems.
This forum is designed for drinking water systems serving 10,000 or fewer people, especially targeting local government systems facing financial challenges. Owners of privately owned systems, consultants and technical assistance providers serving small water systems are also invited to attend, provided that there is space. This forum is being offered at no cost to participants.
Small drinking water systems in the following eight Region 4 states are invited to register:  Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.  The forum has been submitted for CEUs to the various states.
