Water and Wastewater Asset Management Seminar Series
Agency: Environmental Quality
This seminar was designed to provide relevant and timely information to water utilities. City and elected officials, utility and DPW directors/managers/superintendents, certified operators and consultants had an opportunity to hear about DEQ updates and be provided with options and implementation strategies for asset management.
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 provided information pertaining to these new requirements.
