Webinar: Communicating with Ratepayers: Getting Past "Paying More for Less"

May 16, 2018
Across the West, public utilities are facing the necessity of raising and restructuring water rates to address operating and capital needs and create successful efficiency programs.
 
While often leading to lower long-term rates, efficiency investments can aggravate short-term rate issues and utilities can often face public anger and conflict over the perception that ratepayers are being asked to pay more for less.
 
The WaterNow Alliance is holding an event at the Long Beach Water Department on Tuesday, June 26 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. geared towards elected officials, water specialists, local utilities, and public utilities to explore what tools can be utilized to communicate more effectively and successfully with ratepayers.
 
Register online.
 
For questions about this event, please contact Sarah Musiker at (415) 360-2999.
