How to Generate Municipal Revenue and Improve Homeowner Satisfaction

American Water--Homeowner Services Group, Booth #1309 Voorhees, N.J.

Most homeowners are not aware of their water and sewer line ownership and responsibility. Emergency repairs can cost thousands of dollars, are typically not covered by homeowners insurance, and prompt angry calls to city and utility officials Now your municipality can turn to LineSaver, a unique and proven program that reduces customer complaints by protecting homeowners from expensive service line repair costs For a few dollars a month, homeowners enjoy peace-of-mind protection while your municipality earns a share of the revenue generated from enrollments

This workshop will cover how LineSaver is a new source of municipal income and a way to improve the public's perception of the water utility. Please join us and learn how American Water manages the program for your community--we pay for repairs, establish a local contractor network, and educate homeowners about service line ownership and responsibility.

Speakers: Sharon Cameron, vice president, Homeowner Services, American Water; Clifford Groh, director of operations, Homeowner Services, American Water

2:45 p.m.-3:45 p.m.

Paper Recovery & Recycling--Challenges & Opportunities in Your Community

American Forest & Paper Association, Booth #1033 Washington, D.C.

Paper recovery in the U.S. reached 50 percent for the first time in 2003--a significant milestone in paper recycling history. Thanks to the continued efforts of those who recycle at home, work and school, paper recovery rates have increased 69 percent since 1990. While this is an impressive number, there is more to be done. To keep up with increasing demand, the paper industry has set a goal to recover 55 percent of all paper consumed in the U.S. by 2012. To achieve this goal, the American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) has created a variety of resources designed to help communities, businesses and individuals increase paper recovery and recycling efforts. Please join AF&PA to learn how your community can help improve tomorrow's environment today.

Speaker:. Gretchen Kornely, manager, Paper Group, American Forest & Paper Association
