In spite of a number of related documents published since the inception of the Effective Utility Management (EUM) initiatives beginning in 2008, specific or discrete recommendations on how utilities would develop and implement the Ten Attributes have not been available. As a result, Water Research Foundation (WaterRF) funded a project titled “Performance Benchmarking for Effectively Managed Water Utilities” to:

• Identify best practices associated with achieving the Ten Attributes

• Identify key metrics and potential targets associated with each best practice

• Develop a benchmarking framework and assessment methodology

• Develop supporting benchmarking tools

• Pilot test the tools with an appropriate cross-section of utilities (e.g. water, wastewater, various sizes, different geographies)

As part of this project, the CH2M HILL team surveyed its participating utility partners to identify their best practices related to EUM and associated performance metrics. This paper presents best practices and related performance metrics associated with the Ten Attributes that have been reported by the project's 17 North American and international water/wastewater participating utilities.
