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 service and expenses? 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.

This training begins by covering Asset Management’s core components and the overall Asset Management thought-process, before focusing more specifically on the practical application of asset management concepts for data-informed decision-making using real-world examples.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding how the practical implementation of asset management core components benefits wastewater systems dealing with aging infrastructure
  • Understand how data can be used to define and track a utility’s mission and goals
  • Discuss techniques, tools, and examples for developing asset inventories and what information should be included in them for robust decision making
  • Know how to develop condition assessment scales and calculate asset criticality
  • Understand how to effectively manage assets by tracking associated costs and activities
