A REVIEW OF RISKS IN THE WATER UTILITIES SECTOR

Carmen Nadia Ciocoiu and Vasile Emil Stefan

Proceedings of the INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE, 2017, vol. 11, issue 1, 1005-1014

Abstract: The complex and dynamic environment where the activity of public utilities’ services is being performed, as well as their particular features are important arguments in favor of implementing the risk management by these services’ operators. Basing on studies achieved so far in Romania’s public services sector, we can acknowledge a precarious implementation of such practices, and consequently the service’s sustainability is being endangered. The special traits of the public utilities’ services involve specific risks, both strategic as well as operational, that require special methods of identification, assessment and treatment.The present work’s proposed theme is to identify the risks that are specific to public utilities services, generally, and those that are particular for water and sewerage services, as well as an emphasis on the impact that the risks that are specific to the water and sewerage services are having upon the operators of this kind of services.
