Lemons to Lemonade: How Kansas City Water Is Using Asset Management Principles to Assure the Quality of Its Data
 
Like many utilities, KC Water is in the process of implementing an asset management program that provides the most value to both internal and external customers. Unlike most utilities, however, KC Water is also dealing with the mandates of a $4 billion Federal Consent Decree and the projects associated with it. 
 
Thousands of assets are being analyzed, designed and improved as part of this program. From an engineering, construction and project management perspective alone, the program presents a significant challenge with hundreds of stakeholders involved from both inside and outside KC Water. 
 
This presentation illustrates a real-world approach to asset management implementation, focusing on its most fundamental component (quality data) and the true benefits of operating from that perspective.
