Water Sector Energy Efficiency: Today and the Future

January 28, 2015, 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.  EST

This is complimentary webinar is brought to you by American Water Works Association and Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments.

We invite you to join us for a discussion of water and wastewater utility energy efficiency programs, both today and potential for the future. This workshop will highlight successes and challenges in the region, with an emphasis on how water and wastewater utilities could participate in state and energy sector efficiency incentive programs. With EPA's Clean Power Plan anticipated to greatly expand the need for energy efficiency, the water sector could become an important component of these plans. Based upon EPA's regulatory analysis, this regulation will cost water utilities several hundred million dollars per year by 2020, and cost electric utilities and their ratepayers billions. We are bringing together representatives from local water and energy utilities to demonstrate past energy efficiency and/or renewable energy projects that have been completed or are proposed for a future date.

Webinar details will be sent out to those signed up on the morning of the event.

Professional Certification Meets Water Field Challenges

February 4, 2015, 11:00 a.m. - noon MTN

This webinar is complimentary for AWWA members.

Built on a common body of knowledge, compatibility with apprenticeship and educational programs, universal standardized examinations, and industry-developed standards, Professional Operator (PO) certification/designation contributes to the recruitment of qualified personnel to safeguard the future of public health and environmental protection systems while increasing public visibility of those earning PO certification. By highlighting the considerable knowledge, experience, and skills required to meet Certification Commission for Environmental Professionals (C2EP) standards, PO certification firmly establishes water and wastewater operators as professionals and vanguards of environmental protection, public health, and safety. Operators earning this industry-first designation signify their commitment to the profession and expertise in the industry, thereby boosting not only their professional stature as operators but the credibility and public reputation of the organizations they represent. This webinar will lay out a road map to earning the PO designation and highlight the valuable resources that accompany it.

Solutions to External Corrosion on Buried Mains


February 11, 2015, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. MTN

This webinar will provide the viewer with a basic understanding of common corrosion mechanisms and also presents several real-world projects that have demonstrated how cathodic protection can economically extend the service life of both new and existing buried water utility infrastructure.

Corrosion of various forms of buried cast iron, ductile iron, and steel piping is a serious problem to municipal water utilities. However, infrastructure asset management tools combined with cathodic protection can significantly reduce the number of premature breaks caused by corrosion. Properly designed, installed, and maintained cathodic protection systems can add years of additional service life to both new and existing water transmission and distribution mains.

Get Rates That Balance Revenue with Customer Needs


February 25, 2015, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. MTN

Is your utility’s rate structure meeting your revenue goals and customer expectations? How does your rate structure compare with other utilities in your geographic region? How do your rates compare with similarly sized utilities? What are trends in utility rates?

For more than a decade, the Water and Wastewater Rate Survey has combined AWWA's overall expertise and resources in the water industry with RFC's expertise in rates, charges, and financial matters in both water and wastewater.  This effort allows informed utilities to better track overall rate trends and their position in comparison with others.

This webinar will highlight not only water rates but wastewater rates as well, and it will address how rates can best be set to balance revenue and customer needs.
