Sustainable Management of Rural & Small Systems Workshop 

This FREE interactive workshop will focus on ten key management areas of effectively managed utilities, which make up a framework for a complete and well-rounded management approach. By making improvements in any of these areas, your utility will be able to deliver increasingly efficient, higher quality services to your community.

At the workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn new strategies and participate in discussions about many topics including:

  • How to assess your utility’s strengths and areas for improvement to help ensure that your community has affordable, reliable clean and safe water now and in the future
  • Hear from other utility managers and local officials about ways in which they are addressing similar challenges
  • How to protect against costly infrastructure failures and water outages
  • Important resources available from USDA and EPA to help your utility and community

We know your time is valuable, but please attend this important workshop! You will learn how this initiative can benefit your community, share information with others about your community’s challenges, and the work USDA and EPA are doing in support of small and rural utilities, and easy ways for you to get involved in this Rural and Small System Sustainable Management initiative.


This workshop is funded by the USDA Rural Development Office through a grant with RCAP Solutions, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides free technical assistabce to rural water and wastewater communities.
