Dwindling budgets and staff affect a large number of water and wastewater facilities across the nation. Because of the current 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 planning is vital to the successful operation and management 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 for the development of a comprehensive report and recommendations.
