In many communiies, wasewaer infrasrucure asses are increasingly sressed from overuse, underfunding, and aging. Public secor managers have been managing asses for decades. However, i is becoming clear ha wha we have been doing in he pas will no be sufficien o address he growing and increasingly complex challenges ha lie ahead. Pracical, advanced echniques for beer managing physical asses have been developed and refined over he pas several decades around he world. These echniques a blend of processes and pracices have been slowly inegraed ino a holisic managemen framework over he pas wo decades. Asse managemen means mainaining a desired level of service for wha an organizaion wans is asses o provide a he lowes life cycle cos. Lowes life cycle cos refers o he bes appropriae cos for rehabiliaing, repairing, or replacing an asse. Asse managemen is implemened hrough an asse managemen program and ypically includes a wrien asse managemen plan. Implemening an asse managemen program consiss of essenially answering and acing upon five core quesions wih regards o an organizaion s asses: 1. Wha is he curren sae of my asses? To answer he firs core quesion, he organizaion can develop an asse regisry, idenifying wha asses he organizaion owns and where hey are locaed. A condiion assessmen of he asses can deermine heir performance and failure modes, and deermine heir residual life. Finally, heir curren values and replacemens coss should be assessed. 2. Wha is my required level of service? Taking ino accoun he curren sae of he asses, he organizaion mus idenify is levels of service, or hose characerisics of a produc or service ha describe is required minimum level of performance. These characerisics ypically include aspecs such as how much and how frequenly he service will be delivered. Level of service helps o do he following:

Tying LOS direcly o budge requiremens reduces he disconnec creaed when here is an expecaion of service response ha is no supporable by budge realiies. 3. Which asses are criical o susained performance? No every asse failure presens he same degree of risk o he organizaion. Consequenly, hose asses criical o susained performance and likely o fail mus be idenified so ha he risk posed by hose criical asses can be conrolled. An asse s risk consiss of he produc of hree componens: Probabiliy of failure: How likely is an asse o fail due o poor condiion, age, and ec.? Consequence of failure: Wha are he coss (economic, social, and environmenal) ha are associaed wih he asse failure? Miigaion: Wha are he exising conrols in place ha can miigae he exising probabiliy or consequence of failure? 4. Wha are my bes O&M and CIP invesmen sraegies? Afer criical asses are idenified and prioriized according o risk, he lowes cos invesmen sraegies mus be planned and implemened o conrol he exising risks. The organizaion can achieve hese risk reamen opions by opimizing he operaions and mainenance (O&M) work being done and/or implemen capial improvemen projec (CIP) for he righ asses a he righ ime. 5. Wha is my bes long erm funding sraegy? Once he appropriae O&M and CIP invesmen sraegies have been seleced, he exising and fuure coss of funding hese effors mus be forecased so ha appropriae seps can be aken o susain hese effors. These may include revising he rae srucure or dedicaing a reserve fund for fuure CIPs. Figure 1 below illusraes he seps involved in answering he five core quesions of asse managemen. Figure 1 Problem and Curren Sae Numerous repors aemp o documen he need for addiional invesmen in (and he physical sae of) municipal infrasrucure in he Unied Saes and New York. Focusing on he wasewaer indusry, hese are some examples:

4 NYWEA Asse Task Force Whie Paper 4 The laes Repor Card for America s Infrasrucure (American Sociey of Civil Engineers, March 2013) graded he naion s wasewaer infrasrucure as a D, below America s overall infrasrucure grade of D+. The Wasewaer Infrasrucure Needs of New York Sae repor (New York Sae Deparmen of Environmenal Conservaion, March 2008) noes ha over $36 billion is required in he nex 20 years for wasewaer infrasrucure. The U.S. Environmenal Proecion Agency and he Congressional Budge Office esimae a $500 billion invesmen gap for waer and wasewaer infrasrucure over he nex weny years o address aging and ailing pipes and sysems. In large par due o he need for infrasrucure renewal o mainain / improve wasewaer service levels, he cos necessary o provide saniary sewer services coninues o increase. Enhanced regulaory requiremens, more sringen waer qualiy sandards, and unfunded mandaes necessiae addiional upgrades. Wih lile o no federal or sae gran funding, hese asse invesmens are almos exclusively funded by local raepayers. The Naional Associaion of Clean Waer Agencies (NACWA) surveys municipal sewer service providers o benchmark he ypical charges levied on raepayers. The NACWA Service Charge Index annually demonsraes ha wasewaer charges far oupace he consumer price index wih he rend expeced o coninue. Typical challenges for many New York wasewaer uiliies are he resisance of governmen boards and he public o rae increases. The recen 2% Tax Cap enaced by he Sae compounds he issue by limiing he amoun by law ha cerain municipaliies may raise heir ax revenue. Wih a large need for invesmen and limied funding capaciy, i is imperaive ha managemen of he infrasrucure be opimized o smarly uilize resources and bes serve he communiy. Benefis of Asse Asse managemen by waer and wasewaer service providers may achieve benefis in he following areas: PLANNING Seing a solid framework of curren asses: locaion, condiion, criicaliy Developing benchmarks for improvemens Idenify risks and formulae risk miigaion programs Seing sound asse replacemen and capial invesmen programs Plan for long erm susainabiliy of he uiliy Promoe sysem reliabiliy and resiliency OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE Implemen bes pracices Prolong asse life hrough sound decision making and focused o&m pracices Opporuniy o reduce operaion & mainenance coss Improve sysem securiy and safey of asses Poenial o reduce energy presen usage and fuure needs BUSINESS PRACTICE Provide asse based plaform and daabase for seing realisic raes Transparenly demonsrae fiscal responsibiliy Meeing service expecaions and regulaory requiremens Budgeing focused on aciviies criical o susained performance

Several full day asse managemen raining workshops have been provided around he sae, which provided WWTP operaors wih a full day hands on workshop and operaor credis. Below are deails of his full day raining program: Training Program Summary: Asse managemen can be described as a collecion of bes managemen pracices ha sysemaically guides an organizaion s invesmen decisions in all sages of an asse s life cycle: planning, acquisiion, operaions, mainenance, renewal, and decommissioning. This invesmen decisions are inended o represen he bes mix of operaions, mainenance, and capial for susained performance over he life of he asse, where performance is measured agains a clearly defined level of service. The objecive of asse managemen is o develop a concise bu comprehensive se of inegraed managemen sraegies (including operaions, mainenance, and capial) for all asses in he enerprise. These sraegies, when inegraed in wrien form, consiue he hear of an Asse Plan. This Plan sysemaically; Idenifies he curren sae (performance) of he asses; Ariculaes he level of performance (service) ha he asses need o susain ino he fuure; Idenifies hose asses ha are criical o susained performance; Inegraes operaions, mainenance, and capial invesmen sraegies o susain performance a lowes oal cos of ownership; and Describes a fiscal sraegy o fund he inegraed sraegies. This course insrucs in he fundamenal conceps, skills and pracices necessary o develop an Asse Plan specific o wasewaer asses. Training Program Goals: A he conclusion of his workshop, aendees are be able o Prepare a simple bu complee Asse Plan; Organize and execue an asse managemen program a a basic level consisen wih bes pracices; Develop and execue a basic Asse Improvemen Plan ha guides he srenghening of idenified weaknesses in an organizaion s approach o asse managemen. The Asse ask force, in coordinaion wih he NYSDEC is ineresed in refreshing his raining program and offering i around he sae over he nex couple of years hrough he Membership Educaion Commiee and Local Chapers.

6 NYWEA Asse Task Force Whie Paper 6 Conclusions and Recommendaions Asse managemen involves he oal organizaion including execuive leadership, managemen, operaions and mainenance. I ensures ha here is buy in from all levels wihin he organizaion o commi o he appropriae programs and funding o ensure ha risk is properly managed and agreed o level of service is achieved. Asse managemen is as much a philosophy and vision as i is a process o ensure hard asses are properly mainained. As we all are aware, aging waer infrasrucure in he Unied Saes is a concern from a public risk perspecive. Compeing needs for limied funds, as well as he complex naure of our sysems, requires ha he allocaion of resources be based on risk and criicaliy, and ha he decision making process is clear.. The Unied Kingdom long ago esablished PAS55 as a framework for implemening asse managemen across all secors, including waer. Idenifying and managing risk, as well as opimizing uiliy operaions, are key o effecive AM. Implemenaion of PAS55 has resuled in significan increased efficiencies in he waer uiliies in he UK, from managemen hrough operaions, mainenance and developmen of repair and replacemen programs. I is an example ha we can look o from a hisorical perspecive. The NYWEA Board of Direcors endorses and suppors he concep of Asse, and encourages every uiliy in New York Sae o begin or coninue his pracice Resources The USEPA, as well as WEF, AWWA, and many uiliies, recognize he benefis of asse managemen. The need for uiliies o do more wih less suppors he use of effecive asse managemen. However, recognizing ha each sysems needs are unique, and ha each uiliy manages heir sysems differenly, he USEPA, AWWA and WEF, have developed and compiled exensive resources on asse managemen, o be used as guide. A summary of hese resources was included herein. There is no one approach ha is being suggesed. I is recommended ha waer/wasewaer uiliies ake advanage of hese resources, and begin or coninue AM pracices hroughou your organizaion. A his ime, here is no requiremen for AM. However, he USEPA, as well as oher sae regulaory agencies including NYSDEC, recognizing he benefis of AM, are beginning o consider he implemenaion of AM as a requiremen of NPDES permiing or sae funding. Table 1 summarizes 38 available resources organized by caegory and dae published. The caegories include: general asse managemen, financial analysis and case sudies, collecion sysems (), risk assessmens mehods, and mainenance managemen sysems. The able includes links, media ypes, publisher, and cos along wih a brief descripion o help wih selecion of appropriae resources. _ Brian Baker, NYSDEC David Barnes, CDM Smih Alan Cherubin, NYSDEC Nancy Choi, ARUP Mike Coley, Wescheser Couny DEF Benjamin Cownie, Black & Veach NYWEA Asse Task Force Members Include: Timohy Taber, Chair Baron & Loguidice Yoon Choi, Co Chair GHD Anhony DellaValle, ARCADIS Joseph Fiegl, Erie Couny Bey Green, Aqua Virginia Ryan Grosskopf, Black & Veach Jorge Pacas, Hach MacDonald William Pu, Monroe Couny DES Sephen Waldvogel, CRA Janine Wiko, ARUP
