To stay ahead of any pipe failures or breaks, and to secure funding for long-term rehab, plans for 20 or 40 years in the future are necessary. It isn’t wise to only look two to five years ahead.

This innovative asset management tool enables you to pull all necessary data into the platform and use it to evaluate risk within the system. From that populated data, you can more efficiently develop a rehab action plan and make accurate cost projections for additional funding. Thus, securing funding for rehab efforts and forecasting your long-term capital.
