Abstract:

Western Municipal Water District (WMWD/ District) is in the process of establishing a longterm financial plan for its 14 business enterprises and evaluating the financial implications of different capital improvement projects. The District needs a comprehensive, user-friendly and reliable Financial Planning Model (Model) that can evaluate different CIP scenarios and financial policies for the whole District at both the aggregate and individual enterprise levels. For its Financial Plan Study, the District engaged Raftelis Financial Consultants (RFC) to develop a comprehensive and customized Financial Planning Model. The District Staff has found the Model to be a very useful and valuable tool for developing and analyzing different capital project scenarios and for effectively communicating results to senior management and the District Board of Directors.
