Best Management Practices: Case Studies from the North American Drinking Water Community

Case Study
The Water Research Foundation documented innovative practices in asset management by five North American drinking water utilities for the Global Water Research Coalition’s (GWRC) international “Compendium of Asset Management Case Studies.” The Foundation is a founding member of the GWRC, a global partnership of water research organizations. The full Compendium will include drinking water and wastewater case studies from four or five countries and will be available in 2009. Included here are the five North American Case Studies related to Drinking Water that serve as Best Management Practices in the area of utility Asset Management. The Case Studies represent utilities that are geographically diverse, vary in size from small to large, have different types of governance structures, and are all quite active in some or all parts of the Asset Management continuum.
