Lessons Learned During the Inventory & Condition Assessment of a Large Water Utility
Hillsborough County Water Resource Services (WRS) provides water, wastewater, and reclaimed water services to approximately 150,000 accounts or about 400,000 customers in Hillsborough County, Florida. In 2002, WRS realized that they needed to implement a new, Comprehensive Asset Management System to deal with upcoming aging infrastructure, predominantly reactive maintenance programs, and the wide assortment of software systems that did not communicate with each other. An advanced asset management strategy was formulated that included the design and procurement of an enterprise-wide, sophisticated Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) as the heart of a larger Comprehensive Asset Management System (CAMS). To fully implement the CMMS system, it was determined that accurate and complete data would be necessary for the system to be fully utilized. This paper outlines the planning, procurement process, costs, schedules, assessment techniques and lessons learned during the inventory & condition assessment of assets at Hillsborough County WRS over the last two years.
