Water Research Foundation


RFC partnered with the University of North Carolina Environmental Finance Center (EFC) on a Water Research Foundation project entitled “Defining a Resilient Business Model for Water Utilities”.

This project assesses the revenue model and resulting financial condition of water utilities in North America, and considers factors influencing financial performance. RFC and the EFC worked together to conduct analyses of the financial reality of water utilities in today’s “New Normal” of a changing climate, declining consumption, and a looming capital deficit. The resulting report provides a view of water utility revenue trends and strategies that can potentially improve revenue resiliency.
