Clean water utilities across the country have spent years building their communities’ trust in the services they provide and in their roles as environmental stewards. Now, as environmental problems are publicized in the media and fear about PFAS and other emerging contaminants increases, it is more important than ever for utilities to communicate to the public how they are confronting these challenges.

At the same time, utilities must continue to be conscientious about the use of their ratepayer funds and the impacts of increasing rates on their communities, which often means pushing back on regulatory requirements that would result in unreasonable costs without significant environmental benefits.

We will explore how utilities can maintain the trust they have built while confronting the realities of environmental and infrastructure challenges.
