Effective Utility Management Fact Sheet
In May 2006, the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, the American Public Works Association, the American Water Works Association, the National Association of Clean Water Agencies, the National Association of Water Companies, the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Water Environment Federation entered into a Statement of Intent to “formalize a collaborative effort among the signatory organizations in order to promote effective utility management.”
The parties identified “Ten Attributes of Effectively Managed Water Sector Utilities” that provide a succinct indication of where effectively managed utilities focus and what they strive to achieve. Further, the parties recommended that the water utility sector adopt and utilize these Attributes as a basis for promoting improved management within the sector. The Attributes can be viewed as a continuum of, or a set of building blocks for, management improvement opportunities.
