Since the nation’s first stormwater utility was established in 1974, many successful stormwater utilities reap the benefits of dedicated revenue to appropriately manage their stormwater needs. But, not all stormwater utilities succeed, especially those set up from failure from the start!

Join Andy Reese, PE, LEED AP, as he explores the top ten ways that stormwater utilities fail to get off the ground successfully, and more importantly…how to avoid these.

In this webinar we’ll discuss the process of establishing stormwater utilities and how stormwater utilities are often set up for failure from the beginning. Within this discussion, Reese will outline the top ten ways stormwater utilities fail to get off the ground, the drivers for and results of these failures, and how to design a comprehensive launch plan that successfully avoids these issues to ultimately provide your community with dedicated revenue, safe and attractive neighborhoods, ecological balance, and clean water for years to come.
