In this workshop, you will learn about how asset management can benefit your system. Not sure where to begin? We will explain how to get started with asset management and point you to resources you need.
With limited revenues, aging infrastructure, and regulatory obligations to meet, a comprehensive approach to managing your system is vital. You may have problems related to unknown meter, valve, or hydrant locations. You may not be sure of which asset(s) to replace given limited funds. Asset Management can help you solve these problems, and more.
You will learn how to:
– Identify the 5 core components of asset management
– Develop an inventory of utility components
– Identify critical assets for sustained operations
– Make decisions about how to operate, maintain, repair, and
replace those assets
– Set goals for level of service at a sustainable cost
