The deadline for completing the 13th annual North Central Utility Rate Survey questionnaire is March 21, 2014. The digital and print versions of the survey were sent out in late January.
Each year, AE2S Nexus conducts a survey of water, wastewater, stormwater, and solid waste utility rates throughout the region. Two unique reports are prepared based on community population. One is for communities with populations of 1,000 to 4,999 people and Regional/Rural Water Systems. The second is for communities with populations of 5,000 people or more.
If you completed the 2013 survey online, you should have received an email message reminding you of your login information and inviting you to reset your password, if necessary. If participating electronically, once logged in, data from the previous year will be pulled into the new survey to be updated or verified as correct. We hope this will streamline the data entry process.
Many utilities find the results of the annual survey to be a useful planning resource in support of ongoing revenue adequacy, cost of service, and utility rate planning efforts. All survey participants will receive complimentary copies of the 2014 North Central Region Utility Rate Survey in mid-2014.
