This workshop will provide you with tools to manage your assets and establish an effective water loss control program.

In the current climate of increasing regulations, decreasing revenues, and aging and decaying infrastructure, an asset management approach is vital. 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; and address operations, maintenance, and asset replacement.

Managing water loss is important to maximize system revenues, cut energy use and operating costs, improve water quality, address failing infrastructure, and mitigate impacts of limited water resources from drought or contamination. You will learn how to conduct a water balance; address non-revenue water including apparent losses and real losses (leakage); set goals that are specific, measurable, and attainable; and efficiently spend limited resources to address water loss.
