Infrastructure asset management is gaining momentum among water and wastewater system managers across the United States. Water and wastewater professionals are implementing infrastructure asset management programs as a way to achieve the lowest life-cycle cost while maintaining required service levels. There have been several reasons that water and wastewater professionals have turned to asset management, including less federal funding for infrastructure projects, deteriorating existing infrastructure and additional demands resulting from increasing population. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution for water and wastewater utilities, it is widely accepted that asset management is being recognized as a practical pathway forward.
