Websites for utilities and water districts don’t attract many casual visitors.
However, there are times when that visit will be a priority – such as paying a bill, or seeking information after a power outage, or to ask a question about a smart metering program. That is when these sites must serve their communities.
The 360Civic Approach
When 360Civic creates a water district (or any utility) site, we do so in a way that makes the most frequently requested actions (such as paying a bill) easy to access.
We also incorporate functionality that makes the site simple to update in the event of breaking news, and to provide helpful weather and environmental information.
This not only keeps the public informed, it can also encourage good safety and conservation habits that help all of us.
Text-to-Banner Service Adds Breaking News to Public Utility Websites
For areas where flooding or power outages will be of particular concern, we offer a text-to-banner service. With this, public utility personnel can add breaking news information to a banner that can be added to the site's home page (such as "Power Line Down on Maple St." or "Flash Flood Warning Issued for L.A. County").
360Civic has provided award-winning design and content for utility and regulatory board websites, with the functionality that makes it easy for visitors to locate the information they need.
