Course Description

Drinking water and wastewater managers across the country are facing the same challenges of rising costs, aging infrastructure, and increased rates of population growth. In order to address these concerns effectively, utility leaders must look beyond the limited operational and financial goals that are usually considered, and take into account other aspects of effective utility management, including: long-term planning and resiliency; community sustainability; employee leadership and development; and stakeholder engagement, understand and support. This course will explore a full variety of considerations in maintaining sustainable water infrastructure using real-world examples and tools of the trade to engage students and prepare them for future careers in the water sector.
