2012 Asset Management Workshop(submitted by Nick McElvain, Lincoln Water System)
EPA's Asset Management Workshop was hosted by the Nebraska Section AWWA on April 3rd and 4th at Mahoney State Park.
Presenters Steve Albee and Duncan Rose presented a case for asset management for the more than 90 attendees.
Starting with the concept that every utility operator manages assets every day on their jobs, they presented details on issues such as developing an asset registry, condition assessments for the most critical assets, determining possible failure modes, and evaluation of the probable replacement cost at the end of the useful life.
Nebraska Section AWWA Education and Training chair John Keith and his committee did a wonderful job of arranging the meeting space and providing great food for the workshop.
