NWP Services Corporation (NWP), in collaboration with the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin, recently released the results of an MBA-student study exploring a wide range of water management, cost and conservation issues, including key takeaways for municipalities and governments who hope to keep ahead of the rising cost of water subsidies for low-income housing and voucher recipients.
The study was conducted by Texas MBA graduate student Rob Schimmel and sponsored by the Energy Management & Innovation Center at McCombs. NWP, a leading provider of utility management, resident and property operation services, was the industry partner and sponsor for the research.
The goal of the study was to substantiate the true economic cost of water and how these costs compare to funds appropriated to low-income housing residents. It is hoped that the research results will further public discussion on water’s relationship to energy and available methods to promote responsible water usage and allocation.
