PIONEERING ASSET MANAGEMENT IN THE WATER QUALITY INDUSTRY – MWRA's MODEL FOR CHANGE
Abstract:The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) is responsible for providing wholesale water and sewerage services, in whole or in part, to sixty-one communities, and 2.6 million people. In addition to its operating responsibilities, MWRA is responsible for rehabilitating, repairing and maintaining the regional water and sewerage systems. Since its assumption of the ownership and operations of these systems in 1985, MWRA has undertaken an ambitious program of water and wastewater system capital improvements with estimated expenditures for fiscal years 1986 through 2009 of over 7 billion. Under one massive construction effort, the Boston Harbor Project, the MWRA assumed maintenance responsibility of the 3.8 billion dollar Deer Island Treatment Plant (DITP). As the second largest wastewater treatment facility in the nation, it is designed to treat 1.2 billion-gallons-per-day.
