Sustainable Utility Management for Rural and Small Systems aim is to support rural and small water and wastewater systems in their common mission to become more successful and resilient service providers. The program is built around ten key management areas of sustainably managed utilities that can help rural and small water and wastewater system managers address many ongoing challenges and move toward sustainable management of both operations and infrastructure. In aiming to increase their long-term sustainability and effectiveness, the eventual goal for systems is high achievement, consistent with the needs and expectations of their communities.
