Syracuse EFC collaborator the New York Water Environment Association, Inc. (NYWEA) will host asset management trainings throughout Upstate New York April 27 (Binghamton), May 4 (Rochester), and June 17 (Lake Placid).

Water & wastewater infrastructure represents a huge capital investment and an Asset Management Plan (AMP) or program provides the foundation for the protection of those critical assets. There is significant focus at both the state and federal level on this topic. For example, communities may be required to develop an AMP as part of a DEC Consent Order. Additionally, the Environmental Facility Corp. is modernizing their scoring system to include points for AMP and Capital Improvement Planning. Last year, the US EPA released the ‘Clean Water Infrastructure Sustainability Policy,’ which clearly highlights the need for AMPs. In addition, USDA Rural Utilities prefers an AMP for funding.

This workshop is intended for water & wastewater plant staff, superintendents, consulting engineers, regulatory personnel and local/elected officials that are or maybe involved with an asset management or capital improvement program.

NYWEA serves the best interest of the public by promoting sustainable clean water quality management through science, education and training. For more information on these trainings, click here.
