In the current climate of increasing regulations, decreasing revenues, and aging and decaying infrastructure, an asset management approach is vital. This workshop will provide you with tools to begin the process and understand the benefits. Asset Management helps you solve problems that are important to you and your operations. For example, you may be experiencing problems related to unknown locations of meters, valves or hydrants. You may not be sure of the best asset to replace given your limited funds. Asset Management helps you make decisions about how to operate, maintain, repair, rehabilitate, and replace utility assets and maintain a desired level of service at a sustainable cost.
You will learn how to:
– Develop an Inventory of utility components
– Set goals for level of service
– Identify critical assets to sustained operations
– Address operations and maintenance, and asset replacement
This workshop is geared toward public works directors, water utility managers, operators and maintenance staff, and financial staff.
