DWM's Financial Picture
Nationwide, cities are struggling with declining revenues and increasing financial obligations. Atlanta is no exception. In particular, the Department of Watershed Management has felt the effects of the country's financial crisis, as it is undertaking a $4 billion overhaul of its water and sewer infrastructure - an overhaul that is court-mandated through two Consent Decrees. At the same time, the obligation to operate, manage and maintain the City's drinking water and sewer systems is undiminished.
Meanwhile, water conservation measures, which the Department certainly encourages, have significantly affected revenues, as have the tightening credit markets resulting from the economic downturn.
The Department wants its customers to understand these effects. The attached charts indicate water/sewer revenues (Chart 1), Municipal Option Sales Tax revenues (Chart 2), Departmental expenditures (Chart 3) and debt service (Chart 4). These charts will be updated monthly; more often if necessary.
