2017 Strategic Directions:Water Industry Report

Water Utility Leaders Driving Toward Sustainability

Black & Veatch’s 2017 Strategic Directions: Water Industry Report examines how data analytics, consumer education on infrastructure modernization and a more comprehensive view of sustainability are helping water utilities gain ground on legacy challenges.

This year’s report reflects the valuable lessons learned on the urgency of addressing lead service lines and alternative water supply. Finding efficiencies, incorporating integrated planning and making educated technology investments are being tied into better data management. A much-needed merge of data into water system operations could similarly explain a change in perspective on asset maintenance, financial viability, budgets, water conservation and water loss.
