Wellington Water had limited information to base their underground asset renewal strategy upon and their assets had some recent spectacular failures.
Was to define the steps they needed to carry out so that they had the right information and processes to base the strategy on. The first process to be defined was a risk-based intervention strategy, which defined the information they needed to gather and provided a process to assess the condition of their very high critical assets and determine when and which assets need to be renewed, repaired or reinspected.
The result is that Wellington Water have now embarked upon a VCHA Inspection and Assessment Programme with a clear strategy to investigate and remediate their most critical assets. Wellington Water have also engaged ProjectMax to assist them as their technical advisors.
