About this Event

Are you a city clerk, city manager/administrator, finance director, budget manager, mayor, board member, utility director, public works director, or operator? Is your community responsible for drinking water or wastewater treatment systems? If so, this workshop is for you!

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is pleased to announce a free educational workshop for local leaders, planners, and elected officials serving communities throughout Missouri that face drinking water or wastewater upgrade and compliance challenges.

Learn how to plan, pay for, and construct water infrastructure projects from agencies that offer financial assistance programs for publicly owned systems. Understand how municipal bonds and other debt instruments act as financial securities, find out about funding opportunities for energy loans, and hear from local leaders in your area how they successfully solved their infrastructure challenges. Attendees will come away from this workshop with practical solutions for your community, understand the next steps in the path forward, and know who to contact for help along the way.
