Trilogy Consulting's Christine DeMaster, as part of the AWWA Rates and Charges Committee, contributed to April 2018's Money Matters feature on utility cash reserves. The abstract of the column is below:
Whether publicly or investor-owned, water utilities must meet operational, maintenance, and capital needs mainly through revenue from services that are delivered with expensive, complex, and regulated infrastructure. Utility systems have no margin for failure, as there is an expectation they will provide uninterrupted service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
A PDF of the column can be downloaded for free by AWWA members here. Non-members can access the PDF for a charge of $30 from AWWA at the same link. If you would wish to discuss cash reserve policies further, please feel free to get a hold of us at our contact page.
After being down for several months once our former website provider shut down their service, we are finally back online with our new portal to the world. We hope to update this website with more regularity, starting with some newer information on our services and some of the projects we have been working on.
We've also moved into a new office in downtown Oconomowoc, WI, after 4 great years in the Historic Third Ward of Milwaukee. It is a slightly more central location for our current client area, and we plan to have it set up soon to host meetings, if so convenient. It has been a busy year, and is shaping up to be an even busier 2018!
