In their ongoing work to support small systems, the Environmental Finance Center Network (EFCN) invites you to participate in several new web training events.  There is no cost to attend these sessions and some may offer continuing education credits.

Establishing a Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is an important facet of the management of a water utility’s assets. This webinar will provide participants with an overview of the components of a CIP. It will also highlight how a CIP, along with other best management practices such as asset management and benchmarking, can improve a utility’s access to financing from the multiple federal and state programs that exist. The webinar will also provide participants with descriptions of these financing programs that provide funding for water infrastructure projects.

In this webinar you will:

  • learn about creating a capital plan for your water system,
  • view a demonstration of the EFC at UNC’s “What to Include in Your Capital Plan” Tool,
  • understand the spectrum of financing options for water infrastructure needs, and
  • compare and contrast grants versus loans and other more sustainable funding sources.

If you have been to an asset management training or have considered or even started asset management activities, you probably have generated many questions about the process. For example, “Where is a good place to start?” or “What options do I have for mapping my system?” or “How do I number my assets?” You may have specific questions regarding something you’ve tried and had difficulty with. This webinar will provide you with a unique opportunity to ask any and all questions regarding asset management or implementing asset management.
