Third-Party O&M for Water and Wastewater Utilities

10 December 2019
Data Insight

Private participation in water & wastewater takes many forms, from private system ownership and concessions to third-party operations & maintenance (O&M) contracts.

Enabled by lower barriers to entry across a fragmented addressable market, O&M providers represent the lion’s share of private participation by systems. Of the 2,073 concessions, O&M contracts, and IOU acquisitions identified by Bluefield, 75% of the total is for O&M.

In this Data Insight, Bluefield has identified 114 service providers and segmented them into four groups: investor-owned utilities, diversified water players, regional players, and local players. Contracts for these players are broken out by geography, system size by population served, and system type (water & wastewater).

In-depth competitive analysis in this report zeroes-in on 24 strategic players—those which provide O&M services across multiple systems and geographies.

In this Data Insight, Bluefield Water experts analyze:

  • O&M contract market landscape
  • Key trends and competitive positions for O&M players
  • Size of the O&M contract market
