Energy Efficiency 062719 10AM

ONLINE ONLINE

Nearly four percent of the nation’s electricity is consumed by water and wastewater facilities, and industry experts are predicting that energy costs are likely to increase 20 percent over the next 15 years. Approximately 30 to 60 percent of the average municipal budget is typically associated with water and wastewater treatment costs. Historically, water and wastewater facilities were designed for peak capacity, with little consideration for operational efficiency. With the fluctuating costs of energy this is at best, difficult to budget, and in bad times a very major expense for the water system. In this workshop we will work to minimize these effects. An energy audit performed by trained and certified personnel specializing in water and wastewater energy use can often uncover potential energy savings of 10 to 50 percent annually. But even a cursory examination done by in-house staff can often result in substantial energy savings.

    Capital Improvement Plans

    For any water utility, even a very small water system, the management of assets (i.e., water tanks, pumps, computers, buildings etc.) plays a significant role in the overall financial performance and the sustainability of the water system. With proper planning, emergencies can be avoided and overall costs will be reduced.  

     

    A Capital Improvement Plan prioritizes the replacement or installation of infrastructure assets. It includes the forecasting and budgeting of capital outlay and is an integral part of the budgeting and rate-setting process for even very small water systems.

     

    This workshop qualifies for 0.6 CEUs.

     

    Workshop agenda:

    • What is a CIP
    • Why does a water system need a CIP
    • 8 Elements of a CIP
    • 9 Criteria for Prioritizing
    • Updating a CIP
    • RCAC’s CIP Model
