New Westminster Asset Management Program

Project Description

Phase I of this project included conducting interviews and facilitating workshops with staff in order to develop a unified vision and implementation plan for the City’s asset management initiative.

Phase II included the inventory, valuation, and remaining life estimates for the City’s water, sewer and transportation assets. The information resulted in the development of capital investment profiles (“nessie curves”) and the resulting sustainable funding envelopes which were presented to senior staff and council.

Phase III involved using the City’s GIS system and related asset management data, in conjunction with the ESRI spatial analyst tool, to develop a risk index for all linear water and sewer assets. The risk index was a combination of the likelihood of failure and the consequences of failure for each pipe segment.
