Workshop: Advancing Asset Management In Your Utility

The Virginia Tech Sustainable Water Infrastructure Management (SWIM) Center will be offering a workshop on Advancing Asset Management in Your Utility Workshop, to be held on March 10-11, 2015 at the Virginia Tech Arlington Research Center in Arlington, Virginia.

About the Workshop: Water utility asset management programs have been developed following the U.S. EPA and WERF core definition of maintaining a level of service at the lowest life-cycle cost and at an acceptable risk. Most utilities, however, only incorporate performance measures into their asset management plans. A holistic approach to asset management is more beneficial because it takes into account the short and long term goals of the utility and can provide better service socially, economically, and environmentally. This workshop is designed to provide holistic approach for water infrastructure management that supports the three key aspects of asset management: performance, sustainability (stressed environment), and resiliency (catastrophic events). The workshops features a diverse group of instructors including Sunil Sinha (Virginia Tech), Gage Muckleroy (GHD), Walter Graf (WERF), Matt Stolte (Town of Blacksburg) and Richard Thomasson (ARCADIS).

The registration fee for the workshop is $350 per person, which includes all workshop materials, lunch both days, refreshment breaks, and a CEU certificate for 1.6 CEUs upon completion of the workshop.
