AGENDA Master Planning for Sustainability The first step to creating a more efficient and sustainable water system is devising a road map through master planning. Holistic master planning will look at existing components and evaluate whether they can be reconfigured to operate more efficiently (reservoirs, pumping stations, treatment plants, etc.), as well as consider system growth and expansion alternatives. System Energy Efficiency Water utilities are big energy users. By evaluating your system’s energy draw, you can explore options for a more energy efficient system. Would a different controls strategy produce a more efficiently run system? Are the proper pumps in place for system needs? Are valves being throttled when a VFD could produce a far more efficiently run station? Water Efficiency Evaluation A water efficiency assessment looks at both supply side and demand side water losses to determine the best places for a utility to address their water efficiency needs. These assessments also consider paper losses versus real losses and how to distinguish the two. It also considers whether improved demand-side efficiency will have an impact on utility revenues, and how to plan for changes in demand and production that result from implementation of efficiency measures. Going Green If your utility wants to step a little farther out of the box, take a look at some of the alternatives available to reduce energy costs and water losses. Alternatives we’ll consider include new power sources (wind turbines and solar, for example) and water re-use or recycling both in-plant and beyond. Communicating With The Public About Your Sustainable Water Utility Practical advice on how to convey your intent and messages to the public to make the incorporation of sustainable practices go smoothly. This discussion includes a look at what to do from a public-relations standpoint if NIMBY syndrome kicks in and customers object to new initiatives. SPEAKER Ann-Perry Witmer, P.E., Crispell-Snyder, Inc. Ann-Perry Witmer has been providing consulting engineering services in Wisconsin since 2002. A senior project engineer with Crispell-Snyder Inc. in Madison, Ann-Perry earned her civil engineering degree at the University of Illinois, where she was recognized as the outstanding senior of her graduating class.

Dear Community Leader: In these unstable economic times, one of the most pressing challenges for community leaders in Illinois, and throughout the Nation, is managing municipal infrastructure. One of the most important factors in community fiscal success is the implementation of sound utility and financial management techniques and the ability to effectively communicate infrastructure needs and financing plans to citizens. The Illinois Section American Water Works is sponsoring two 2-day courses in Springfield that should provide invaluable assistance to both elected officials and key municipal staff on utility and financial management. The first course on Utility Management is scheduled for Friday, February 13, and Saturday, February 14 and will focus on the responsibilities of owning and operating a water system, and how to improve the technical, managerial and financial capacity of the system. This is an introductory level course targeted to utility board and council members, mayors, administrators and utility clerks; and, in particular, is recommended for all newly elected decision-makers. The second course on Financial Management is scheduled for Friday, May 22, and Saturday, May 23, and will focus on the business information cycle, including managerial record keeping, planning, asset management theory, long and short term budgeting, plan implementation and budget monitoring. The course is targeted to village administrators, clerks and finance committee members, and will provide insight into how to make sound decisions on budgets, rates and capital purchases. Managing community assets at a time when revenues are down and costs are increasing is a formidable challenge. The two seminars being offered by ISAWWA are intended to help community leaders through this difficult process. We hope you will be able to take the opportunity to enroll your key decision-makes in one or both courses. Sincerely,
