The Impact of COVID on Revenue Loss for Rural Water Utilities
|Date: April 21, 2021 |
Time: 3:00pm EST
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in unprecedented economic hardship for the already financially constrained rural water sector, as smaller utilities often have less access to capital and limited reserves, making them ill equipped to absorb even temporary revenue loss. While aging infrastructure and other challenges have led to bad debt expense and revenue loss prior to the pandemic, many systems are now faced with higher-than-ever delinquency rates and shut-off moratoria creating even deeper debt. This session will discuss the financial issues faced by rural water utilities during COVID-19 and beyond, and examine potential solutions through public and private channels.
|Featuring Panelists: |
Michael Preston, Legislative Analyst, National Rural Water Association
Connie Stevens, Executive Director, Alliance of Indiana Rural Water
Robert White, Executive Director, Alabama Rural Water
Mark Slater, General Manager, ServLine by HomeServe
