Capacity Development

Overview

Capacity development is the process through which water systems acquire and maintain adequate technical, managerial, and financial capabilities to enable them to consistently provide safe drinking water.

In 2013, Alaska updated its Capacity Development strategy to support, promote, and improve the sustainability of Alaska’s Public Drinking Water Systems. In 2019, the strategy will undergo another review to prepare systems to better meet future capacity needs that take into consideration changes in recent regulations as well as funding availability.

Capacity Development efforts include water system training and technical assistance, financial review of new public water systems, and coordination with other State, Federal and local agencies that are providing assistance to public water systems.
