Taking the Long View: Asset Management for Water Systems
September 6th, 1:00pm - 2:00pm EST

For many water utilities, a key part of managing system sustainably is thinking long-term and taking stock of how assets will hold up over time. With miles of pipes below ground and critical storage, treatment, and pumping assets above ground, getting a handle on the condition of these systems is often easier said than done. Learn how leading utilities and cities are using sophisticated asset management practices and a risk-based approach to help address the issues of evolving regulatory requirements, growing populations, demand for improved service and reliability – all while simultaneously addressing the challenges of water scarcity, a highly variable climate, aging infrastructure, and limited state and federal funding.
