Small Community Toolbox
The NCRP Small Community Toolbox provides resources and references that allow small communities to approach the management of local water and wastewater infrastructure in a systematic fashion. The Toolbox is not a substitute for professional assistance with operations, management, engineering and legal issues. Rather it is intended to help small utilities develop a “first order” understanding of what their options are, how they should begin to budget, and how to get help.
The goal of the toolbox is to provide additional resources to small communities that help them minimize gaps and allow small and or disadvantaged purveyors to more effectively move through the Utility Management Cycle and access financial and technical assistance.
