Asset Management Made Easy - SD1's Continuous Sewer Assessment Program Implements Practical Asset Management
Abstract:Sanitation District No. 1 of Northern Kentucky (SD1) decided that Asset Management is simply knowing what you have, what condition the system is in relative to a desired level of service, and what happens if that level of service is lost. Once that information is obtained, making cost effective decisions is simply making informed decisions. SD1 has developed and implemented a straight forward program known as the Continuous Sewer Assessment Program (CSAP) to manage its assets.
The CSAP includes prioritized and integrated rehabilitation/replacement decision making that will be of critical importance when SD1 undertakes the implementation of its Consent Decree. This paper documents the development and implementation of SD1's CSAP, which began operation in January 2008 but is a perpetual program. The CSAP comprises six individual but related O&M programs that provide a systematic, prioritized, structured, and ongoing approach to preventative O&M, sewer assessment and sewer rehabilitation.
