Long-term management of decentralized water resource infrastructure is an integral element of reliable public health and environmental protection. In spite of EPA guidance and support, however, the market for management services has been slow to emerge. A 2005 workshop discussed several “early adopter” models that are developing across the country, and developed recommendations for communities, agencies, and advocacy groups. Business development is likely to continue in a highly-fragmented and localized pattern, but the model of utility management of cluster systems is likely to grow the fastest. Public interest considerations suggest attention to equity and land use repercussions will need to be addressed in the future. Opportunities exist for integrated water utilities and designs, and performance-oriented regulations.
