SOUTHGATE WATER AND SANITATION DISTRICT ASSET MANAGEMENT IMPLEMENTATION
Southgate Water and Sanitation District
Asset management is essential for any public works department to accurately plan capital replacements and schedule preventative maintenance. When Southgate Water and Sanitation District needed to better manage their assets, Woolpert implemented their Infrastructure Optimization (IO) toolset—a more sophisticated approach to asset management. Data from Southgate’s continuously updated geographic information system (GIS) and their work management system is used to perform condition assessments and ensure a more systematic capture and consideration of field conditions.
Decisions affecting maintenance flow directly from the Asset Management System into the Work Management System. The implementation of the IO toolset has substantially improved the ability to make capital improvement decisions, package capital projects and establish priority for maintenance operations.
