Are you facing your first big water or sewer project? Don't know anything about the subject?

It covers planning, engineering selection, funding, design, and construction, and what to expect in each segment along the way.
Are you facing a utility rate increase? Not sure which way to turn? Ohio RCAP in cooperation with The Ohio Water Development Authority has developed a training course for decision makers on setting utility rates, consisting of two components: rate analysis and rate structure.
Rate analysis covers topics such as characteristics of a good rate structure; overview of the rate analysis; asset management, safeguarding utility funds; and user classifications and groups.
Rate structure covers topics like types of structure; proportional to use; rate setting tools; lifestyles and economic development; and billing and usage analysis.
This is an excellent course for decision makers to understand what goes into making a good sound and defensible rate structure.
