The objective of this research was to provide water and wastewater utilities with information on how to effectively use condition assessment tools and techniques to improve both long-term planning and day-to-day management of assets. The report is structured for two distinct audiences: 1) Utility planning managers who want to embark upon cost-effective condition and performance assessment programs to support long-term planning decisions, and 2) engineering/maintenance managers seeking to identify and understand the advantages and disadvantages of tools and techniques for measuring the condition and performance of utility assets in order to support daily maintenance and operation of assets.
