    About Our Presentation

    In an effort to maintain operational efficiency while maximizing capital value, utilities across the nation have committed to developing robust Asset Management Programs. An exceptionally useful tool, Asset Management is a process water and wastewater utilities, and their corporate partners, can use to make sure that planned maintenance is conducted and capital assets (pumps, motors, pipes, etc.) repaired, replaced, or upgraded on time and within budget.

    Using its own take on Asset Management, the Orange County Sanitation District (OC San) is committed to establishing a robust understanding of the condition and performance of nearly $11 billion in critical and major assets. By maintaining its focus on monitoring and tracking the performance of all its assets, OC San ensures its ability to meet established levels of service. It also enables the District to keep accurate track of all maintenance plans and renewal programs, while it brings to light any corrective actions needed to improve performance should expectations not be met.

    OC San’s Asset Management Plan is a tactical document that captures operational strategies, maintenance plans, and capital improvement implementation on a continual basis. This is critical to the process, for a primary characteristic of a successful Asset Management Program is continual improvement. And OC San is dedicated, above all, to making this program pay dividends in every way possible.

    Join us, March 17, when Eros Yong, Engineering Manager for OC San’s Planning Division, takes us for an in-depth look at the District’s ongoing efforts for asset management. She will show us the approach the District took to develop the program, share details on the process, and give valuable insight on how it is used on a daily basis.

    You won’t want to miss this presentation. This is a process useful to all water and wastewater agencies, no matter the size. We all have assets. Utilizing them wisely, and protecting their useful life, is a necessity for both modern utilities and their corporate partners. Make plans today to attend.
