The primary objective of this project was to develop a framework for water utilities to guide and select the most appropriate strategy to determine a cost-effective course of action to schedule the next inspection/condition assessment for a high consequence pipe or a group of pipes, given available knowledge of historical performance, environmental, and operational conditions. The entire approach was coded into a user-friendly, interactive Excel-based application, Pipeline Inspection Decision Analyzer (PIDA). Published in 2017.

In addition, an article focused on this project was published in the April 2018 issue of Opflow. The article is posted below under Project Papers.
