Innovative water system analysis
What is important to your water system? Water Finance Assistance will work with your water staff, management and board to identify your priorities. Often, systems only have a gut sense of how they are doing. Through our innovative data analysis, we will measure your system’s performance in objective and interesting ways. We combine information from your water system with outside data from census, SDWIS, and other sources. Whether you care about having enough money for your system, making water affordable, encouraging economic development, or using water efficiently, we will help you understand how you are performing today and what obstacles may be headed your way in the future.
