Incorporating Sustainability Considerations into Alternatives Analysis - December 13

November 19, 2012

Incorporating Sustainability Considerations into Alternatives Analysis - December 13

Effective planning is essential for utilities to sustainably manage their operations and ensure that water infrastructure investments are cost-effective over their life-cycle, resource efficient, and support other relevant community sustainability goals. In February, 2012, U.S. EPA issued Planning for Sustainability: A Handbook for Water and Wastewater Utilities. Developed with extensive input from utility managers and states, the Handbook describes a series of core elements and steps utilities can take to build sustainability considerations into their existing planning processes.

Please join us for the third in a series of webcasts built around the core elements of the Handbook. This webcast will focus on how utilities can build sustainability considerations into alternatives analysis as they evaluate and select investments. We will hear about how utilities in Beaverton, OR and Carrboro, NC have addressed sustainability in their analysis of alternatives.

Third Webcast: Incorporating Sustainability Considerations into Alternatives Analysis: December 13, 2012 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern Time

Registration: This webcast is now over.
