West Yost Associates Empowers Clearer Determination Of Risk

Lani Good, P.E., is an Asset Management Practice Leader. During her 5 years at West Yost Associates, she has specialized in Utility Asset Management. Her organization exclusively focuses on water, wastewater, and stormwater systems to ensure longevity for typical water infrastructure assets – pipes, pumps, storage and treatment plants.

Lani understands the pain points many of her clients face and works with determination to facilitate their success in overcoming the obstacles of complex water system management. According to Lani, “Our mission is to help our clients develop effective strategies for managing assets […] our goal is to provide integrated approaches that match each client’s unique needs”. So what challenges are Lani and her team at West Yost trying to resolve? Since they manage water, wastewater, and stormwater systems, West Yost’s client base is primarily made up of municipal cities, counties, and local and regional agencies. Their challenges can range from lack of funding and agreement on risk-prioritization, to data sets that are sprawling and unorganized in different locations, formats, and ownership.To help their clients address these issues, Lani and her team of experts use Innovyze’s InfoMaster to develop Asset Management Plans (AMPs) that are founded on data-driven risk assessment, and thus empower more efficient administration of rehabilitation and repair initiatives for water infrastructure assets - saving their clients both time and money.
