Your stormwater infrastructure is aging, and regulatory requirements, population growth, climate change, and other influences compound the issue. A proactive asset management program can improve your stormwater system and reduce costly repairs and replacement. Our experts work with clients to build programs that plan for necessary upgrades, system renewal, and the long-term management of their stormwater infrastructure.
Aging stormwater infrastructure is a concern for counties and municipalities across the U.S. With limited funding and resources, many communities find themselves in a reactionary position. We help clients overcome these barriers and migrate to proactive, long-term, and sustainable approaches to asset management. Our experts assist communities in developing a comprehensive asset management program that maximizes the quality and integrity of their stormwater assets, and minimizes risk and lifecycle cost.
Put Technology to Work
Asset inventory is the first step in building an effective asset management program. We harness the power of technology to identify each of your stormwater assets, from inlets and outfalls to storm sewers and culvert crossings. Using drone technology and geospatial information, we develop real-time GIS maps that eliminate outdated paper maps; increase accuracy and efficiency; and aid in communication and knowledge transfer. We put this information at your fingertips, with custom mobile applications that can be accessed in the office or in the field.
Consider the Conditions
Condition assessments also are a critical component of an effective asset management program. Our team of investigators can determine how your assets are performing, their remaining useful life, the risk associated with each, as well as repair and replacement costs. This information will become the foundation upon which a compelling business case for your stormwater investments may be built.
