Description: This training covers basic Asset Management principles and explains the current Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) Lead & Copper Rule (LCR) and expected revisions. This training will also demonstrate data collection and mapping techniques to help utilities inventory, develop, and publish service line material data that SDWA will require.
This training begins by covering Asset Management’s core components and the overall Asset Management thought-process before focusing more specifically on concepts of asset inventory and criticality (risk analysis) critical for analyzing and prioritizing the maintenance, repair, rehabilitation, and replacement of aging infrastructure. We will cover types of inventory data that can and should be collected, asset condition assessment, and developing of a criticality matrix for your infrastructure assets.
We will then review the current SDWA Lead and Copper Rule requirements and transition into what to expect and prepare for the upcoming revisions to the Rule.
