Webinar: Communicating Rates in a Changing Water Landscape

September 20, 2018
2:00 pmto3:00 pm

Utilities face competing realities: on the one hand, neither outside funding or water utility rates have kept pace with needs; on the other hand, increasing rates has a real impact on customers.

Join the US Water Alliance for a webinar on Communicating Rates in a Changing Water Landscape. Hear from leading water communications teams about considerations, messaging, and tactics that help the public understand why investment is so critical and get your questions answered.
