Virginia Tech in cooperation with the Virginia Department of Health is pleased to offer a short course dedicated to the financial side of maintaining waterworks. In the present economic climate, it is critical that waterworks management personnel understand and implement a business plan that allows for an analysis of needs, budget development, and capital improvements. As a part of the planning process, one needs to consider the appropriate rate structure for a community, potential sources of grants or low interest loans, and communication with decision makers and the public. All of these subjects will be covered through lecture, class discussions, and hands on activities. The training manual you will use was specifically designed for this course.
