Impact of Variable Demand and Cost Factors

Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust (OCWUT)

Like many areas of the country, Oklahoma City experienced the financial impact of wide variations in the volume of metered water and wastewater flow, operating cost increases, and a substantial capital plan for replacement and new construction. TXP, in partnership with Public Financial Management (PFM), helped OCWUT develop revenue and cost projection methodologies and establish reserve policies that will help maintain both long- and short-term financial stability. To help meet these goals, TXP and PFM collected available financial and usage data, reviewed current financial models, engaged in multiple discussions with staff, and collected and reviewed economic, demographic and meteorological data.
