Systems Helping Systems A Conversation on Utility Collaboration

Small water systems can often benefit from collaborating with other water systems in informal and formal ways.  But establishing successful partnerships requires effort from all parties involved.  In this webinar, RCAP staff will share stories from working in the field with communities on water system collaboration.  What elements are needed to make a partnership successful?  How can communities move from informal collaboration to more formal arrangements?  How important is the role of a local champion?  The webinar will answer these questions and more as well as showcase some of RCAP’s tools and resources related to water system collaboration.

The material in this webinar is best suited for individuals who are involved in the management of water systems.

The webinar is funded under a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with additional funding from Spring Point Partners and was conducted on November 17, 2020. You can find the slide deck here: Systems Helping Systems A Conversation on Utility Collaboration
