Managerial Capacity Workgroup Releases Resources for Capacity Development Staff!

During the September 2010 National Capacity Development/Operator Certification Workshop, participants identified a need for more information and resources to assist small systems in the development of managerial capacity.  A workgroup was formed to evaluate and report best practices in building and evaluating managerial capacity to increase sustainability of small public water systems and identify further efficiencies of state programs. The workgroup’s efforts included:

  • developing indicators for assessing managerial capacity as part of water system capacity,
  • looking into how states are utilizing asset management practices to help strengthen water system managerial capacity, and
  • identifying different types of training strategies for water systems board members.

The resources developed by the workgroup can be used to complement the efforts that state Capacity Development coordinators are working on in their programs. As you are utilizing these resources, feel free to let Sonia Brubaker ( know of any feedback you have on the products and/or how you might use them.
