Asset Management Switchboard

The Southwest Environmental Finance Center has partnered with EPA to create a repository of documentation and tools related to Asset Management. 

Whether you are new to the Asset Management process or just need a refresher on a specific topic, the resource you are looking for is probably here. If you’re unable to find what you’re looking for, reach out and tell us about it.

If you would like to contribute by having a resource added to the repository, please email the Southwest Environmental Finance Center (by clicking on the link below) and tell us about it. We welcome your feedback and strive to serve your utility and water systems at large.

This is a collection of Asset Management Resources from a variety of sources. Some of them are from the SW EFC, many are not.

Why should I implement Asset Management?

Just a few of the benefits.

Knowledge Management

The collective data and knowledge is greater than the individual.

Work Efficiency
  • Reduces field time: Don’t have to look for assets

  • Know where spare parts are and have the right parts in inventory

  • Know which O&M tasks to do and when (and which ones not  do)

Financial Efficiency

Investments in preventative maintenance lead to:

  • Fewer accidents
  • More efficient operation / service
  • Fewer unexpected breakdowns
  • Less reactive maintenance
  • Better understanding of how your assets are aging
  • More sustainable utility
