Water Utility O&M Data


Clients rely on our O&M data to understand the changing market environment for third-party services.

The third-party O&M services segment has garnered significant attention recently in the wake of pandemic-related workforce disruption, regulatory calls for advanced treatment solutions, and shifts in the competitive landscape. This changing market environment presents an opportunity for third-party service providers to capitalize on their applications of technology experiences, geographic coverage, and scale, particularly with very small to medium- sized utility systems.

Bluefield’s Private Water team regularly upkeeps a comprehensive dataset of third-party operations & maintenance (O&M) contracts. This data helps our clients address key questions:

  • Which states see the most O&M contracts?
  • How do the O&M contracts vary (by service type, contract length, cost)?
  • What are the areas in which utilities are outsourcing their O&M
    and what size utilities are mostly like to leverage third party providers?

How do I access Bluefield’s O&M data?

Client access to our O&M Data Dashboard is through our Private Water Corporate Subscription.

What are Bluefield’s data sources for this info?

Bluefield’s O&M data has been gathered based on publicly-available information and company engagement. Bluefield’s O&M contracts database is comprehensive, but O&M contract data is not always readily available, especially for regional and local players contracting for small and very small systems.

How often is the data updated?

We update our O&M data on an annual basis.
