Is your community dealing with an aging water utility infrastructure (treatment facilities, piping, storage tanks, pumps, or other equipment and appurtenances)? Are you facing high replacement costs? Attend this seminar to learn how the implementation of an asset management plan can help you address these concerns.
The complex management of water, wastewater and collection systems has a direct impact on a community's public health and safety, environment, economic development and quality of life. Asset management is a tool to help utilities prioritize and classify the assets associated with the management and operation of a water system. What does this mean to your community? More efficient management of public utilities, lower replacement costs, and an overall healthier community.
Additionally, the DEQ is now including an asset management program requirement in reissued major municipal WWTP NPDES permits that expire on October 1, 2012, and thereafter. This seminar will provide information pertaining to these new requirements.
