Abstract

Water utilities are increasingly recognizing the importance of properly managing their infrastructure investments to achieve higher system reliability and service level at lower costs. As new technologies emerge for the water sector, application issues, cost-benefits, reliability, maintenance, durability, and performance need to be continually evaluated to develop fit-for-purpose solutions and minimize application risks. Thus, there is a need to compile and critically review this information in order to provide guidance to the water sector on asset condition assessment technology implementation and operation. This project identified and mapped emerging technologies that provide potential for more effective solutions for inspecting, monitoring, and overall management of aging water conveyance systems.
