Abstract:

OVERVIEW

Municipal utilities throughout the country are facing challenges never before seen in the industry. Retirement of utility workers who entered the field during the construction grants era of the early 1970's are severely depleting the workforce, and increasing competition for fewer workers. Reduced numbers of young people are choosing to enter the utility field, as other professions have somewhat outpaced cash strapped municipalities in offering better and more lucrative career options. As such, utilities have had to look at ways to continue in “business” with less resource and fewer people.
