RIA developed a pilot self-assessment tool based on the results of the South Carolina Water Utility Assessment. It is intended to help utility leaders, technical assistance providers and others identify issues that may need to be addressed to strengthen the long-term viability of water and sewer utilities. You will need to download the Excel file in order to use it. If you have difficulty using this tool or ideas for improving it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A tool that can assess the financial performance of your water and/or wastewater utility fund to measure key indicators such as ability to pay debt service, availability of cash to pay for operations and maintenance, sufficiency of revenues generated, etc.
Enter in all capital projects, and this tool will project your fund balance (revenues/expenses/reserves) and necessary rate increases for the next 20 years and more. This is intended for small to medium systems.
A tool to help small systems calculate the rates necessary to cover costs, developed by Powdersville Water for an SCAWWA training.

CMOM stands for “capacity, management, operations, and maintenance. The CMOM checklist is a screening-level tool that can help utilities identify areas of strength and weakness, as well as flag CMOM program areas that need improvement, and establish priorities for additional detailed assessments. The checklist also allows for the comparison of annual performance.
