Our asset management plans leverage approaches such as PAS 55 and WERF SIMPLE to help utilities assess strengths, weaknesses and potential implementation steps. We can help clients assess the condition of their assets, prioritize capital improvement programs (CIP), adapt CIPs, optimize operations and maintenance, and assess system resilience and vulnerability. When conveyance means tunneling, we turn to our experts who are skilled in underground construction, mechanical and non-mechanical methods, and trenchless technology. We have delivered a full range of geotechnical services and expertise for more than 650 miles of tunnels for raw water, treated water, stormwater, wastewater and combined and sanitary sewer overflows. Black & Veatch has been designing dams longer than any other consulting engineering firm in the United States, with continuous work for more than 100 years. We’ve been responsible for investigation, safety inspections, analysis, design, construction, risk management and emergency preparedness of more than 1,500 dams in 20 countries.

Aging infrastructure is primarily to blame, as an estimated 40 percent of U.S. water and wastewater pipes are beyond their life expectancy, notes a recent article in WaterWorld. The article goes on to say that half of forecasted capital expenditures by water providers will cover new installation and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure Predictive Maintenance Offers Promise in Asset Management When it comes to understanding how water utilities approach asset maintenance, survey data shows that, on average, they tend to weight their efforts more heavily toward preventive maintenance. The Stormwater Resilience Roadmap: Integration of Delivery Frameworks and Financial Capacity A structured path to a paradigm shift in stormwater management can be developed by integrating an alternative program planning and execution framework, and by enhancing financial resilience through effective funding mechanisms.
