Asset Management

Asset management is not a specific product, but a discipline that allows organizations with physical assets to achieve their objectives in the most cost effective way. An "asset" is defined as any entity that can be used to meet the needs of a client or customer by: performing an operation, functioning as part of a process, producing a product or performing a service.

 

Asset management is the optimal selection, maintenance, operation, inspection, and renewal of assets to maintain a desired level of service at the lowest life cycle cost. Lowest life cycle cost refers to the best appropriate cost for rehabilitating, repairing, or replacing assets. Asset Management is the science of making the right decisions and optimizing these processes.

Weedsport Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements and Asset Management Program

  • renovated control building
  • Converted treatment tank to SBR
  • Aerobic digesters
  • Control building with post-aeration blower
  • new blower building

The Village of Weedsport owns and operates a sanitary sewer system, portions of which date back to the early 1900s, and a 0.30 MGD activated sludge wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) constructed in the 1960s. In addition to the age of the facility, the WWTP’s average daily flow was at nearly 100 percent of the plant’s capacity, and peak wet weather flows are in excess of the plant’s influent pumping capacity, at times necessitating emergency bypass pumping operations by the WWTP operators.  B&L completed a combined collection system I/I Study and WWTP Facilities Plan and assisted the Village in securing American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding for the project, including approximately $3.0M in principal forgiveness, of which approximately $400,000 is “Green Project Reserve” for energy efficiency measures incorporated into the WWTP improvements design.  An asset management program was developed following the plant upgrades.

Mohonk & Minnewaska Carriage Roads Asset Managemen

Mohonk & Minnewaska Carriage Roads

  • Mohonk and Minnewaska Carriage Roads

B&L was retained to review existing GIS data and establish a Conditions Assessment and Classification system to help automate data collection and inventory the conditions of 65 miles of carriageways within the Minnewaska State Park Preserve and Mohonk Preserve.

 

B&L collected the data using handheld GPS equipment having sub-meter horizontal accuracy and a two-person all-terrain vehicle.

From this GIS mapping, B&L developed a carriage road naming and stationing convention to assist with documenting work needed on the extensive trail network. After the inventory and analysis was completed, B&L performed an existing systems assessment, cultural resources assessment, maintenance assessment, rehabilitation assessment, and opinion of probable cost. All of this was presented to the client in a Restoration and Maintenance Manual for the Shawangunk Carriage Roads Systems. This manual offers a guide to estimate costs of restoration, reconstruction, and maintenance.
