Achieving a Comprehensive Approach to Facility Asset Management: The Duffin Creek WPCP Experience
Everybody is now talking about asset management. Integrated asset management, enterprise asset management, life-cycle asset management are all terms we hear over and over again that reflect a recognized need in the water and wastewater industry to develop business processes and systems that provide key decision-makers with the full range of information they need for effective utility management. Although many utilities are striving to implement comprehensive approaches to infrastructure asset management, in reality few initiatives truly achieve this goal. The Region of Durham's Duffin Creek WPCP Asset Evaluation Study was undertaken with this same objective in mind: to bring together divergent stakeholder requirements in developing a comprehensive approach to managing the assets of the facility such that all Planning, Operations, Maintenance, Facility Management, Engineering and Finance Department information needs are met. With this study, the Region has successfully taken a significant leap forward towards the implementation of a comprehensive asset framework for all of Durham's facility and linear assets.
