OK Training | Asset Management for Wastewater Systems: What It Is and How It Can Help You
Location | Accurate Labs & Training Center, 505 S Lowry St, Stillwater, OK 74074
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?

It is a process that allows wastewater systems to better manage their assets and improve the workday for their employees.
