America's Water and Wastewater Industries: Competition and Privatization
Privatizing a water system can mean lower costs...better service...and fewer budget headaches --IF you do it right. This new book tells you how.
America's Water and Wastewater Industries: Competition and Privatization examines outright sale of properties, design & build options, O& M contracts and service agreements, establishment of "concessions," "managed competition" between public and private-sector operators, outsourcing of non-core activities, and more.
If you're involved with municipal water policies or operations, you can't have a better resource at your fingertips!
Real-life case studies from both large and small communities, step-by-step checklists for contracts and negotiations, actual statutes for privatization--these are just some of the highlights of this brand-new book!
