Dwindling budgets and staff affect a large number of water and wastewater facilities across the nation. Because of economic conditions at the state and federal levels, borrowing has become increasingly necessary to fund upcoming projects. As a result, improvement projects are often postponed indefinitely and available funds are redirected to address more urgent needs—a reality facility managers and operators face on a daily basis.
This is why effective project management is so vital to the successful operation of water and wastewater facilities. For the most part, customized solutions are the norm. A thorough analysis of requirements and the challenges they pose is essential to the development of a comprehensive report and recommendations.
