Do you want to improve your water system’s financial health? As a member of the governing body, management or staff of a small water system, you have very important financial responsibilities, including establishing the policy framework governing your utility’s finances; planning for the system’s financial future; preparation and adoption of budgets; monitoring and oversight of financial performance; and ensuring accountability and integrity of the financial system. The goal of good financial management is to ensure that your utility operates as a financially sustainable enterprise while providing safe and reliable water, both in the short- and long-term, to your utility’s customers.


Participants will learn to:

·   Recognize various financial statements and understand how to use them to make informed decisions

·       Understand the elements of internal controls

·       Develop a meaningful budget

·       Identify methods to balance the budget


The recommended audience includes local government (board of directors), managers and operators.  


This training will be hosted online on GoToTraining.
