Thank you to Green Economics for sponsoring the technology of this event!

Abstract: This presentation will focus on how Covid-19 is impacting water, wastewater, and stormwater agencies’ financials and how to weather the continuing storm. The presentation will focus on strategies to manage spending and projects and I’ll do a deep dive into prioritizing projects in a way that makes sense. We’ll talk about how to have more dynamic and “living” plans to meet today’s demands for flexibility with all of the pressures that agencies face. Finally, we’ll talk about capital planning in the context of affordability and financial sustainability.

Our Speaker: Alex is Vice President and Director of WSP’s water practice in the Northwest Pacific district. In this role, he is responsible for leading a team solving some of the area’s most challenging problems. His technical background is in finance and economics, and most recently served as HDR’s National Water Economics Lead. Alex specializes in helping utilities make complex financial and capital planning decisions, using custom models and project prioritization methods.


Free for EVERYONE!!!
