KUB periodically hosts community meetings to discuss major utility projects or other topics of interest to customers, like our conservation workshops to help save energy and water – and money on utility bills. When meetings are scheduled, you can find information about them and copies of handouts, etc., here.
KUB also provides speakers on a variety of utility-related topics to neighborhood associations and other local organizations. The speakers usually provide about a 20-minute PowerPoint presentation and answer questions from the audience.

- Century II
Century II is KUB's proactive long-range program to improve and maintain the electric, natural gas, water, and wastewater systems for our customers.
- Private Lateral Program
This required regulatory program helps ensure that property owners maintain and repair their laterals. [Laterals are the customer-owned pipe that connects homes and businesses to the sewer system.] The presentation includes why it is important to maintain your lateral to protect your property and our environment from sewage backups and overflows. It also covers the process for making repairs if KUB notifies you that your lateral is defective and potential financial aid to help pay for repairs.

Presenters offer simple low-cost or no-cost ideas to help you conserve energy and water – and save on your utility bills.
