The United States can boast the finest water and wastewater systems in the world, but it cannot sustain this extensive infrastructure unless steps are taken to counter its natural wear-down due to age. The resulting task is to initiate and manage a modern, methodical, and sustainable asset renewal process, called asset management. This report fully explores the processes involved in asset management: Define expectations and assess the condition, Estimate the remaining useful life, Manage the wear-out process, and continually Improve the plan. Written for: water utility managers, governing boards, community stakeholders, and others interested in the subject.
