Art & Science of Setting Bulk Water and Sewer Rates
When properly negotiated and documented bulk purchase and sewage treatment agreements can be a mutually beneficial means of acquiring treatment capacity. Unfortunately, the benefits of bulk service agreements are often derailed by a lack of understanding, mistrust, and greed. In this course Ohio RCAP will highlight factors that should be considered in negotiating bulk service agreements, including recommendations in the AWWA M1 manual and USDA/RUS regulations.
This training will be applied for 1.5 drinking water and wastewater "Other" contact hours.
Instructions and Disclaimers
Instructor-led webinars enable busy local officials and staff the training opportunities they need to fit their schedules. Registration is required, and for many classes, space is limited. If an event fills to capacity and a waitlist is started, when practical we will try to add another class. RCAP will give local officials and operational staff first priority if we are not able to accommodate everyone.
In order to receive credit for contact hours and certificates of completion, you MUST be clicked on and have the webinar page or screen as your only active screen for at least 90% of the webinar. If you click off of this to open and view other webpages or desktop applications, the Webex, GoTo Meeting or other hosting applications we use can detect and record this in our attendance reports. We submit these reports to Ohio EPA. We recommend you close all other windows and web pages to avoid accidentally clicking on them.
So that your attendance and participation can be accurately calculated, for most on-line events you will not be able to join more than a few minutes early. All presentations will begin promptly at the start time. Please be sure WebEx is the only open program/application on your computer. Please close all other windows to ensure proper credit for contact hours, if applicable.
For the best experience, please join us on a stand-alone computer. If you use a phone or a tablet, you should download the WebEx app to your device, and it is required for apple devices. To download the desktop app, go to: https://www.webex.com/downloads.html.
RCAP offers multiple training opportunities that include online webinars, in-person classroom trainings and hands-on field days. If you would like to receive our monthly email invitation, send your contact information (including an email address) to our Program Assistant at email@example.com.
