Alexandria, VA, Jan 27, 2004 -- The Water Environment Federation (WEF) announces the release of "Managing the Water & Wastewater Utility", the federation's first publication in 2004.
This new best-seller is designed to provide a broad overview of the management knowledge required to run a top performing water or wastewater utility. It is written for upwardly mobile professionals, consultants working for utilities and individuals aspiring for a career in utility management.
In an age of dynamic revolution in business, the environment, and society, the need for competitive business practices has become a driving force for change. Public and private operators who are not driven by a passion for change are going to be left behind in this increasingly cost and quality conscious-world. This book is designed to help transform the specialist into a leader and is an ideal textbook for the student or young professional studying to become a utility manager.
The authors Roger J. Dolan P.E., DEE, T. Duncan Rose, Robert A. Baker, P.E., and Michael J. Barnes, P.E., have drawn on decades of on-the-job experience in utility and financial management to define the direction, tools, skills and techniques required to produce a truly high performance organization. Highlights include: leadership, financial management, budgeting and fiscal control, managing O&M, design and capital improvements and the role of information technology.
