ASSET MANAGEMENT RESOURCES

  • Bristol Water has provided clean, fresh drinking water to its customers since 1846. For almost 200 years, the health and environment of their communities has remained at the forefront of their values. Today, Bristol Water supplies over 1 million people within Bristol, England, across an area of almost 2,400 square kilometers. Bristol Water’s operations include the abstraction, storage, treatment, and distribution of water to homes, businesses, and other premises. They focus exclusively on water, not wastewater.  

  • Two wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) in Texas needed to ensure their facilities could maintain water flows running at their current capacity and determine whether or not improvements were required. In order to do this the plant managers needed to find a solution that would provide accurate and informative results, hydraulic modelling assessments.

  • Recently, Innovyze held a virtual event with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to discuss the barriers faced by water utilities in achieving digital transformation. The event also featured the launch of Info360, the latest Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform that supports real-world lifecycle management using the power of the cloud. As Water Online noted, this was one of the largest attended webinars they had seen in years.

  • Everyone I know in the water industry understands, we are here to serve the public. We talk a lot about how technology is transforming the way we plan and operate smart water, wastewater and stormwater networks. But we should go beyond and consider the ways in which the public could benefit from the use of dynamic digital twins. After all, they are paying for the flood-protection, sewage, and water network the water industry services. They should expect benefits from the innovation they fund – it shouldn’t just be “business as usual.”

  • It appears to me Asset Management and Stormwater are two topics that rarely come together and yet seems like they would be such a natural fit. The ISO 55000 Asset Management Standard applies to both intangible and tangible assets, so why not natural and built? Can we apply Asset Management principles to Mother Nature? Yes, we can. Through Green Infrastructure.

  • Water Affordability and Equity issues have been around for many years, if not decades. Lead service lines were state-of-the-art water engineering in the 1920’s, yet 95 years later the relationship of public health and public infrastructure catapulted to the top with the Flint, MI crisis in disadvantaged communities.

  • For over 30 years, Innovyze has helped water-distribution, stormwater and wastewater professionals achieve success with hydraulic modeling projects. In that time, we have seen the same mistakes made over and over. We have designed and built the InfoWorks ICM and WSPro Workgroup architecture so that you don’t have to make those same mistakes, again.

  • Water and Wastewater service providers across the US identify that their number one resilience issue is coping with their aging and decaying water and wastewater infrastructure. Within the backdrop of a growing investment gap, greater demand for their services and increasing regulatory compliance, a main concern is how to extend the lifetime of assets through risk-based prioritized operational and capital investment planning.

  • Under pressure to radically improve leak detection and prevention, Italian water utility Acquedotto del Fiora is the latest European water company to adopt geospatial artificial intelligence (AI) techniques as part of its plans to boost performance.

  • Tracking specific assets such as pumps and pipelines may keep water or wastewater flowing, but helping a utility flourish under challenging physical, financial, and environmental pressures requires a more comprehensive overview. Here’s how asset management and work management solutions integrated within a GIS-centric system of action can do a better job of supporting both tactical and strategic aspects of utility operation.

ASSET MANAGEMENT VIDEOS

Climate change, resiliency, equitable spending, regulatory requirements… these are just a few of the challenges that water utilities must address when planning for capital and operational investments.  With these and many other factors adding to the analysis, the decision-making process becomes complex. Infrastructure leaders are now faced with a fundamental shift in expectations and economic constraints. Manual, iterative infrastructure planning processes that organizations have leaned on for decades are no longer equipped to deal with these decisions. We require a new strategy to adequately balance cost, risk, and level of service. One that handles a multiplicity of conditions and can exhaust all possibilities, quickly.
