There may be a concern with small utilities ability to participate who didn't /weren't able to complete the survey.

good to know wastewater cost an issue and noted

Opportunity but concerns with internalizing since currently housing does water support, this seems tobe going EA

I think that would be helpful to reopen the survey - LOC would be happy to push it out to our membership again.

Very encouraging and hopefully our local Cities will be on board and easily to work with.
