Tuesday, July 18 — 12:00pm to 4:00pm
New Jersey City University Business School, Jersey City
Join Jersey Water Works at our second annual Membership Meeting to celebrate the work of the collaborative, network with members, learn from national experts and brainstorm how we can move forward our top priorities in the next few years.
The event is free to attend and lunch will be provided.
Join us as we Tackle the Big Questions: Four breakout discussions will examine how New Jersey can advance…
- Management. What can Jersey Water Works do to make “asset management” an expected, mainstream activity of water and sewer utilities? How can we help local officials and the public to understand its importance and support it?
- Awareness. How can Jersey Water Works make water infrastructure “incidents” more visible to the public and elected officials, as a means of educating them on the importance of sound water infrastructure?
- Data. What information about the integrity of water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure and system finances are likely to be most persuasive for the public and for decision-makers in water utilities and government from municipalities to the Legislature?
- Funding. Many states have created new matching grant programs for local utilities. They have used different models to procure the funds, including through the annual state budget, new fees, and borrowing through state bond issues. If New Jersey were interested in creating a new matching grant program, which funding options would be most feasible? How could water infrastructure grants be targeted to have the greatest long-term impact on transforming infrastructure systems?
