DWSD Optimization Project

DWSD has been engaged in a peer review of its operations, capital program development and implementation, and administrative functions since August 2014. The goal was to identify ways to achieve efficiency savings, improve customer service and provide an opportunity for DWSD to receive recommendations and ideas for improvements throughout the department. The peer review would complement our ongoing optimization program, addressing the question, "What can DWSD do to improve even further and faster?"

The outcome is an in-depth review that provides further validation of DWSD's overall strategic direction, points out the many policy choices facing utility operators, and gives insightful considerations to assist DWSD in making these choices.

The final report from the peer review is posted here. Please read to learn more about the results.
