The National Rural Water Association (NRWA) and Waterworth identified six qualified water and wastewater service providers to participate in a new case study. These six water systems, one from each state in EPA Region 8 (North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado), are receiving discounted access to Waterworth software for one year, accompanied by training in the financial management of water and wastewater systems. The intention is to bring financial management tools and training to rural communities who otherwise may not have access to these resources.
The participating systems are listed below. Five of the six began their pilots in July, 2019 and are well on their way to completing baseline financial models. The sixth system started its pilot in September, 2019. We anticipate that before the end of 2019, all participants will have completed models and will have demonstrated these models to their boards and state rural water associations.
At the 2019 WaterPro conference in Nashville in early September, we had an opportunity to meet in person with representatives from some of the participants, as well as from some rural water system associations. It was great to meet face-to-face to give and receive status updates.
