Sustainable water management: ratemaking & affordability
MetadataShow full item record
The U.S. is suffering a crisis of affordability, especially among low-income and marginalized communities. One portion of the affordability crisis has received disproportionately little effort and attention—the cost of water and sanitation services. In Measuring and Addressing Water and Waste Water Affordability in the U.S., ISE provides: - A more comprehensive set of metrics to measure the scope of the affordability problem in the U.S. - An affordability assessment tool for decision-makers. - Recommendations for how different stakeholders can take action to address affordability using the insights from this new set of affordability metrics.
