Description: With limited revenues, aging infrastructure, and regulatory obligations to meet, a comprehensive approach to managing your wastewater system is vital. What information will be useful to you? How should you track your system assets? How does your aging infrastructure impact your efforts? Which asset(s) should you replace given limited funds and how should you prioritize replacement? How do you know how much money you might need? Asset management provides a framework to help you solve these problems, and more. It is a process that allows wastewater systems to better manage their assets and improve the workday for their employees.
This training covers Asset Management’s core components and the overall Asset Management thought-process, including:
- Development and tracking of Level of Service goals
- What types of inventory data can and should be collected
- Development of criticality (risk analysis) criteria, criticality ratings and using a criticality matrix to sort your infrastructure assets and prioritize your interventions and expenditures
- Discussion of life Cycle Costing and Long-Term Funding
