Utilities necessary for outdated water systems - Master Meter

Funding for the much-needed upgrades can be garnered through partnerships from both the public and private spheres, said Tom Roberts, president of Aqua North Carolina, a water utility that has spent more than $11 million to rehabilitate and improve water conditions statewide.

Roberts noted that all the equipment and technology targeted for updates are necessary components of the potable and wastewater systems and are vital for optimal and sustained health. He called upon the U.S. to make the best decisions when it comes time to make much needed improvements to pipes, wells, mains, tanks, meters and hydrants for the future.
"We can't rely on state and local governments to bear all the costs of this massive undertaking," Roberts said.

Tom Roberts, president and chief operating officer of Aqua North Carolina, a subsidiary of Aqua America, said he predicts that ownership of larger municipal water systems by investor-owned utilities will be more likely in the future. Aqua America is a publicly traded water and wastewater utility with operations in eight states.

"I think the water industry continues to change nationally and within the state," Roberts said.
...
And while Hicks and Roberts agree that aging water systems will be an incentive for municipalities to privatize, Hicks is uneasy about the trend.
...
Roberts said that investor-owned utilities are often the only option for systems in distress.
"We bring an alternative to the table for systems that may have a big investment necessary to meet regulatory compliance or they want take their asset and sell it to a private utility and take those funds and go do something that is more important to them," he said.
Aqua North Carolina may have a small footprint in WNC, but he said that it could grow. Among the advantages of a corporate-owned utility, he said, is the capacity to spread risk over a large statewide customer base and access to financing that may be unavailable to public entities.
While the privatization of large municipal water utilities has yet to take hold in North Carolina, Roberts said the tide may shift as public operators struggle to keep up with an aging infrastructure with limited resources.
