Running a small water system can present technical, managerial, and financial challenges for many reasons, including the fact that a small number of users are paying for all of the expenses related to the infrastructure and compliance. This session will discuss a wide variety of ways to work with other utilities to reduce the burden or operating, managing, and funding a water utility ranging from informal methods, such as information sharing and leveraging shared purchasing power to more formal methods, such as sharing personnel or having a combined management structure.
