Survey Report

What are the benefits of asset management? Implementing the concepts of asset management means making more informed, better decisions in order to sustain the desired level of customer service in the most efficient and effective way possible. 

In order to better understand the need for additional resources to better serve those wanting to begin or advance their implementation of asset management programs, AWWA conducted a survey in early 2015 to collect information on the level of progress in utility asset management. Complete responses to the survey were received from 545 utilities. This report includes aggregated summaries and analyses of the reported utility practices and policies as collected through this survey.
