Making renewal investments with confidence: a robust decision process for 3 waters reticulation networks

Description:Municipalities across the world are faced with the challenge of managing aging stocks of assets, while coming under increased pressure to reduce expenditure. This is leading to a drive to improve efficiencies and implement advanced asset management. This paper describes a decision support process that has been developed to help municipalities prepare optimised renewals and maintenance programmes for potable water, wastewater, and stormwater reticulation assets. The software tool produces budget forecasts, future risk profiles, and level of service predictions for various scenarios. It enables water utilities to gain a better understanding of the trade-offs between investment, risk and levels of service.
