Comprehensive Guide to Water and Wastewater Finance and Pricing, Second Edition provides an updated and expanded examination of the principal aspects of financing and pricing for water and wastewater utilities. Organized in two sections, this new edition covers everything from privatization and setting rate structures to long-term and short-term financing. Traditional and innovative financing methods and pricing structures are provided. The guide also shows how to design appropriate pricing structures to ensure equity and self-sufficiency.

What's new in the Second Edition?
Comprehensive Guide to Water and Wastewater Finance and Pricing, Second Edition has been significantly revised and expanded to address current trends in the industry. The new edition features expanded discussions of state revolving loan funds (SRFs) as a financing method for local governments, the privatization concept and current incentives and disincentives associated with environmental privatization, the impact on public private partnerships of the President's executive order relating to grant funded facilities, and proposed tax legislation that could have a significant impact on environmental infrastructure financing. The new edition provides a detailed example of how a utility would establish revenue requirements and then structure a set of rates to recover these requirements. It also provides a comprehensive chapter on conservation pricing which discusses the background of conservation rates, advantages and disadvantages, and design considerations of conservation rate structures (uniform rates, inverted block rates, seasonal rates, and marginal cost rates). Results from Ernst & Young's 1992 National Water and Wastewater Survey are supplied as well.

Comprehensive Guide to Water and Wastewater Finance and Pricing, Second Edition will be an indispensable reference for water and wastewater management, professional engineers, U.S. government officials, state and local government planners, investment bankers, utility entrepreneurs, directors of water and wastewater utilities, finance managers, utility and environmental attorneys, and financial and rate consultants.
