Asset Management Planning & Implementation – Various Locations

For those involved in the management of public and private infrastructure such as water/wastewater facilities, stormwater systems, distribution systems, roads, utility grids, natural gas, bridges, and railways, you are acutely aware that the management of these systems has dramatically changed over the past few years. This need to sustain such infrastructure has growing challenges due to the number of aging systems and insufficient funding.

Legislators have begun to require asset management systems. An example of this was the NJDEP’s 2017 introduction of the Water Quality Accountability Act. It established new requirements for purveyors of public water to improve the safety, reliability and administrative oversight of water infrastructure. Purveyors must create and implement an asset management plan designed to inspect, maintain, repair and renew infrastructure consistent with standards established by the American Water Works Association.

Effective infrastructure management requires the owner to collect and monitor information regarding each asset such as condition assessments, reoccurring maintenance problems, work orders, service requests, permits, inspections, engineering plans, photos and videos. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be used to link these asset characteristics to geographic features (pipes, valves, manholes, etc.) as well as provide integration with other data sets like consumer demand and flood hazards.

For infrastructure asset management plans, the GIS services we provide make it possible to integrate infrastructure information from multiple sources. We manage all project data on a single GIS platform, analyze information on a geographical basis and provide an overview of the entire project area and the infrastructure issues being investigated.

Our Asset Management Team can be involved throughout the process. From the development of the condition survey strategy to the preparation of the asset management plan. Priorities are determined for the work to be performed with the fundamental goal to preserve and extend the service life of long-term infrastructure assets. These resources are vital underlying components to the preservation of society’s quality of life and economic efficiency.
