HI Online Training | Asset Management for Small Water System Operators: In the Field and Beyond
Description: You work hard to provide safe, quality drinking water to your customers at fair rates. Many asset management decisions are made by upper management, but what does asset management mean to a small system operator? This training will show you how asset management best practices come into play in the day-to-day operations and maintenance of a water utility and teach you more about utility finance, how to track and benchmark financial performance, how rates and level of service go together, and how decisions in the field are part of a greater asset management strategy. You will learn about these topics through examples from real small systems. This workshop will provide you with the tools and knowledge to improve the fiscal health of your utility without compromising service or deferring maintenance.
- See asset management as it exists in the field
