      Water Infrastructure Asset Management Committee

      Purpose: The Water Infrastructure Asset Management (WIAM) Committee will foster the development of fundamental and advanced asset management practices. Focused on infrastructure sustainability and resiliency, the committee will provide thought leadership and advice on how utilities can better manage their assets, improve levels of service, and reduce life cycle costs. The committee will gather, evaluate and disseminate information and approaches for infrastructure data collection, data assessment and analytics, and decision-making and economic science. Efforts will include bridging the gaps between engineering, operations and maintenance, information technology/GIS and finance disciplines to develop integrated collaborative strategies. The committee will also promote asset management training opportunities, the benefits of water infrastructure asset management, the importance of progressing from reactive to preventative to predictive practices and promote the use of asset management plans to justify and secure the appropriate levels of asset maintenance, renewal and replacement funding. The committee’s activities will be closely coordinated with other industry leading committees so that common asset management best practices can be developed and synergies with other asset classes can be realized.
