A Cost-Efficient Asset Management Approach


Develop your asset management in-house…and save! Join Bryan Chappell to explore how to develop a cost-efficient, in-house stormwater and roadway asset management program focused on resource optimization, prioritized workloads, and increased productivity, and resulting in effective maintenance, repair, and operation of a MS4 Stormwater System applicable for maintenance organizations of any size.

In this webcast, Chappell outlines how Pierce County Public Works Road Operations developed its current successful, in-house asset management program for stormwater drainage and roadside features, including Pierce County’s approaches for inspection, prioritization, and maintenance of assets while meeting NPDES requirements for an MS4; scoping and assessment processes; collection tools; and data management strategies. Through Pierce County’s real-world case study, we’ll learn how to build a process that not only asses individual features, but identifies key information and determines the severity and extent levels of each asset (both linear and point features) leading to proper corrective action. Additionally, we’ll discuss the benefits of using this full-featured asset management approach and how it allows for the development of long-range planning, service level goals, and adaptive management. Finally, we’ll explore the implementation costs (e.g., labor, equipment, materials, etc.) tracked year-to-year, revealing real cost-over-time and how these implementation costs become cost-neutral and cost-saving over time.

Join Chappell to learn how Pierce County’s asset management process and program can successfully be implemented in a maintenance organization of any size, and for all asset categories that any Public Works entity maintains.

Learning Objectives 
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Learn about an asset management program that focused on the effective use of resources, prioritizing workload, and increased work productivity while producing cost neutral outcomes, eventually leading to real savings.
  • Discover how using a simple rating scale is intuitive and recognizable across all asset categories regardless of whether or not your asset is a point or line feature.
  • Learn how to consistently apply the distress criteria to define necessary corrective action needed to repair or replace an asset to a pre-determined level of service.
  • Realize how the use of existing GIS tools and in-house processes supported the collection and asset inventory and condition information.

* Presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour with a 15-20 minute question and answer session to follow. Presentation may exceed scheduled time. 
* Each state and certification agency has different requirements; it is your responsibility to know what they are. Note that 1 PDH = 0.1 CEU.
