Enduring Communication In a Changing World

Paper retains in a place in the communications pantheon, and here is a brief listing of MMUA produced publications.

Public Power Forward Toolkit

MMUA, Missouri River Energy Services, Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency, and the American Public Power Association have developed the Toolkit.

The Toolkit is designed to give you an introduction to emerging trends in these key areas:

  • Rate design and business models
  • New technologies
  • Information technology and operational technology

The Resource

MMUA annually publishes 11 editions (combining July and August) of The Resource newsletter. This four-color, tabloid newspaper promotes association activities and provides in-depth coverage of the people, issues and events that affect Minnesota's municipal utilities. The Resource is a significant member benefit and popular advertising vehicle for those doing business with the state's municipal utilities.

Year in Review

MMUA's most recent Year in Review highlights activities and accomplishments from 2014. If you need a higher resolution file for printing, please contact us!

Spec Book

In an effort to ensure common construction practices consistent with prevailing safety codes, MMUA and its members have produced a distribution system Specifications (Spec) Book. The book has proven to be a handy reference manual. It also promises to simplify mutual aid efforts, as a growing number of Minnesota municipal utilities build their systems to a consistent shared standard.

Mutual Aid Manual

Work on this manual has been ongoing for many years. It remains under development at this time.

Gas Circuit Rider Newsletter

Minnesota municipal and a number of privately-owned natural gas utilities benefit from the services provided by the MMUA Natural Gas Circuit Rider. Topics at the top of the month's agenda are highlighted in this newsletter.
