Lessons Learned Using Asset Management Principles to Implement CMOM/SSMP
Abstract:County Sanitation District No. 1 (CSD-1) provides wastewater collection to the greater Sacramento, California area. CSD-1 recognizes that risk-based asset management offers longterm benefits to its customers through defining levels of service and controlling costs. Like other wastewater utilities throughout the nation, CSD-1 struggles to comply with increasingly stringent regulatory requirements while minimizing rate impacts to its customers.
CSD-1 recognizes that Asset Management (AM) offers long-term benefits to its customers in terms of defining levels of service and controlling costs, so we are integrating implementation of AM with developing a voluntary Sanitary Sewer Management Plan (SSMP). Just how do you work with 300 employees to keep them working productively while making the changes necessary to meet these challenges? This presentation will describe the programs being implemented in Sacramento and share somepractical lessons learned in the process.
