Fostering unprecedented collaboration.
Although the four NOCWA communities were interested in working together to improve water service and lower costs, they did not want to give up ownership and operation of their own individual infrastructure. As a result, NOCWA has no single entity overseeing system operation, and the communities have to work closely together to coordinate water usage. To make this unique approach work, OHM Advisors played a key role in overseeing extensive upfront discussions and planning. Because we were viewed as a trusted advisor, committed to making sure all parties’ best interests were met, we were able to secure the communities’ commitment to moving forward with the plan.
