- Is your utility’s rate structure meeting your revenue goals?
- How does your rate structure compare with other utilities in your geographic region?
- How do your rates compare with other similar-sized utilities?
- What are the current trends in utility rates?
AWWA’s 2021 Water and Wastewater Rate Survey will help your utility answer these critical questions and more. It provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date water and wastewater utility rate and financial data and analyses available.
Data are provided for utilities providing water service and wastewater service from 42 states and the District of Columbia. The survey includes data from utilities that serve from 1,000 to 5 million customers, making this information relevant to utilities of all sizes. Survey data are shown in a series of easy-to-read tables, ideal for detailed analyses and comparisons. Data are organized by system size, so you can quickly isolate utilities that are similar to your own.
This new edition also includes a thorough discussion on continuous improvement by measuring effectiveness and efficiency of service delivery in addition to the analysis of the data from the rate survey and the interactive spreadsheets.
