About Rocky

Rocky has been with Raftelis for more than 14 years helping utilities and the public sector develop solutions to their unique financial and operational challenges. While his focus is water, wastewater, and stormwater financial planning and rate studies, Rocky assists clients in a number of other areas, including cost of service, benchmarking and metric tracking, rate differentials, risk analysis, utility policy, rate cases, financial capability assessments, and staff augmentation. Rocky also oversees Raftelis’ many survey efforts, including the biennial national Water and Wastewater Rate Survey, which is co-produced with the American Water Works Association (AWWA), and the INSIGHT Survey, which is produced by the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies (AMWA). Rocky is an active member of AWWA and WEF, serving on WEF’s Utility Management Committee, and chairing WEF’s Finance and Administration Subcommittee. His other industry efforts include authoring a chapter, entitled “Development and Design of a Schedule of Rates and Charges,” in the 2018 update to WEF’s Manual of Practice #27 and another chapter, entitled “Benchmarking Rates and Charges,” for the Fourth Edition of the industry guidebook, Water and Wastewater Finance and Pricing: The Changing Landscape.
