Project Update

The research team continued to provide support and advice to all 5 participating utilities on sourcing and implementing solutions for the project tasks. LADWP began participation with a new team in this period, and it have completed 2 of 3 training sessions, with the 3rd training session scheduled for March. All utilities needed some assistance to identify, assess, and resolve organizational barriers to implementing solutions. These barriers have included effective communication within the organization, securing resources, maintaining employee participation, and ensuring effective consultation within the utility’s project team. To date, these barriers have been successfully overcome, and each utility is continuing to progress.
