Although most of us in the water business speak of “aging infrastructure” what we are really concerned about is “decaying infrastructure” – those 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 with pipe is compounded when an issue, such as lead, exists.  The priority of pipe replacement can be drastically altered when lead pipe needs to be removed as a public health and safety issue over 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.

  • Obtain a solid understanding of what asset management is and how it benefits water systems
  • Identify the 5 core components of asset management
  • Understand how asset management can be applied to pipe infrastructure
  • Understand funding sources available for lead pipe removal in Ohio
  • Next steps for applying asset management to your water utility
