Course description

Planning for Water Distribution System Renewal

Understand the causes of failing pipe systems, renewal methods, and the details of comprehensive pipe renewal programs.

Many cities suffer water main failures that create suffering and loss. Recent examples include millions without safe water during a Texas weather emergency and a public health crisis in Flint, Michigan. These failures erode public confidence in local government and water utilities. Causes of failing systems include inadequate political support, funding, and planning for comprehensive pipe renewal programs.

The material will outline a path to improve the resilience of drinking water systems, including both technical and management approaches. It will explain causes of failing pipe systems, renewal methods, and the details of comprehensive pipe renewal programs that can win public and political support for the funding needed for renewal programs. Starting with effective asset management programs, utilities can create business strategies for successful renewal programs.

The material will be aimed at the needs of water system officials and consultants, who will be serving local governments and utilities as clients for water infrastructure system improvements.
