Annual Utility Compensation Survey Now Available from AWWA

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) has announced that the release of its annual utility compensation survey is available. The data is divided into three products to guide utilities serving different population sizes.

The 2019 AWWA Compensation Survey of Water and Wastewater Utilities provides current data and analysis of salaries, salary ranges and compensation practices in the water and wastewater utility industry.

As utilities work to keep pace with a tightening labor market, AWWA’s compensation survey offers up-to-date data. Specifically, the survey is designed to help utilities:

• Compare salaries to those of similar utilities by filtering data by type of ownership or management, population size and total number of employees;

• Reference salary range minimum, mid-point and maximum levels for each position — as well as 50th percentile, company-weighted average pay and employee-weighted average pay;

• Compare similar jobs even if titles are different;

• Review recent changes to overall staffing levels, workplace policies and cost-control initiatives; and

• Access segmented data for all participants, water-only participants and water/wastewater participants.

The 2019 AWWA Compensation Survey of Water and Wastewater Utilities serving populations over 100,000, populations 10,000 to 100,000, and populations under 10,000 are available on AWWA's website.
