The PNCWA Utility Management Committee (UMC) is charged with cultivating and disseminating best practices in utility management internally to members and externally to stakeholders with an emphasis on fostering PNCWA’s vision of clean, sustainable watersheds for future generations.

The committee enables this through workshops, webinars, monthly meetings, and information sharing, with topics ranging from asset management to finances and rate setting.
