Overview

This report analyzes the Sewerage & Water Board (S&WB) procurement process for private operation and management of the water and wastewater systems in New Orleans.

In this study BGR addresses two basic questions:
(1) Is the S&WB’s proposed procurement structured in a way that maximizes competition and otherwise protects the interests of the citizens of New Orleans?
(2) Is the proposed privatization the best way for the S&WB to meet its financial challenges and improve services?
