Data gathered from a broad range of water and wastewater operations to help utility managers assess their own performance.


The American Water Works Association has released the newest edition of Benchmarking Performance Indicators for Water and Wastewater.

The report assists utility managers in comparing how their utilities are performing against others in the water and wastewater sector.

The report delves into this useful data by focusing on five areas of operation — organizational development, customer relations, business operations, water operations, and wastewater operations — and uses 43 key performance indicators. Historical trends from previous AWWA benchmarking surveys are also provided.

The report can be purchased in AWWA’s online store.
