About this Workshop:
Although most of us in the water business speak of “aging infrastructure,” what we are really concerned about is “decaying infrastructure” – assets that are no longer able to do their job, regardless of how old they are. Often, it is pipe infrastructure that is the most problematic because we can’t see it and don’t really know what condition it is in. It is also very expensive to replace. The problem is compounded when an issue such as lead is present. The priority of pipe replacement can be drastically altered when lead pipe needs to be removed as a public health and safety issue over the replacement of large, decaying water mains. This workshop will discuss how to use asset management principles to address decaying infrastructure with a particular focus on lead pipe removal.
