Our Water and Wastewater rates may need to increase to pay for the renewal and replacement of our aging and corroding infrastructure - however, we must implement asset management best practices in order to ensure that we manage our infrastructure at the lowest cost and at an acceptable level of service. As an author, I wanted to create a personal website to help educate and to offer visitors a “big picture” perspective regarding aging water and wastewater infrastructure (AWI). My hope is that the AWI resource center will bring together engineers-operators-maintenance-finance-IT-utility management-elected officials-citizens and allow us to come one step closer to making sustainable and affordable water services a reality.
