      Although fast-tracking asset replacement is essential to avoid failure of aging infrastructure, it also requires a far greater investment of funds. Utilities must build compelling, risk-based rate cases that assure regulators that this increased infrastructure investment aligns with the public’s need for . This is the continuation of what Ross and Heather were discussing in the previous post “How to Number and Replace Water Utility Infrastructure.” [ ] Reply.

      1 day ago  The upgrades will also increase water treatment capacity, which is an important component to meeting future growth and demand. Currently, water treatment plant one can produce 15 million gallons of water daily year-round while water treatment plant two produces 10 million gallons of water a day on a seasonal basis. With water systems built during previous generations reaching or exceeding the end of their useful life, the renewal and replacement of aging water and wastewater infrastructure is the top challenge facing water utilities in the United States.

      The Failure to Act: The Economic Impact of Current Investment Trends in Water and Waste Treatment Infrastructure report shows that our nation’s drinking water and wastewater infrastructure is aging and overburdened, and that investment is not keeping up with the r, a modest increase in investment in drinking water, wastewater, and wet weather water quality measures can prevent. A road map for public works and utility professionals, this book provides clear and practical guidance for life-cycle management of water infrastructure systems. Grounded in solid engineering and business principles, the book explains how to plan, budget, design, construct, and manage the physical infrastructure of urban water systems.

Replacing the Nation’s Deteriorating Water Infrastructure While Maintaining Affordable Water Rates written by Neal Walters of the PPI Consumer and State Affairs team explores concerns about replacing the nation’s rapidly aging water infrastructure while keeping water rates affordable for consumers.

Water and wastewater systems are vital to the nation’s public health, protecting the Author: Neal Walters.

These water distribution systems can be damaged if their source water is affected by natural disasters and/or spills of chemicals and oils. Drinking water distribution systems are also increasingly vulnerable to interruption in service from a terrorist attack, an industrial accident, an extreme weather events, and aging water infrastructure.

The State of the Water Industry (SOTWI) report by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) makes renewal and replacement of water infrastructure the highest of its five most important water industry issues.

Most American buried water pipelines are nearing retirement or are already too old for use. As Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues, the American Water Works Association has released a guide that highlights how water utilities can manage the risk of cyber attacks on water infrastructure systems.
