Opportunities and Obligations


  • Additional priority points are awarded to PWSs with existing asset management plans.
  • A comprehensive assessment of water and/or wastewater equipment and infrastructure, including includes analysis of a system’s AM, is performed by the Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP) Solutions. Collected data is frequently required for grant or loan applications. The DWSRF program also provides incentives for small PWSs to implement AM plans. Project subsidizations are offered for systems that commit to creating AM plans, or with existing AM plans.


  • Statutes ensuring existing PWSs are utilizing AM have been passed by the Connecticut Department of Public Health (CT DPH). For example, CWSs serving <1,000 year-round residents are required to prepare an AM and fiscal plan for their assets. See Connecticut General Statutes (CGS) §19a-37e, 25-32 and Public Act 21-121.
  • Problems or changes to systems’ assets are assessed by the Sanitary Survey Capacity Questionnaire.


  • To avoid infrastructure failures and manage system assets, CT DHP partners with RCAP Solutions to provide tools and training.
  • To meet the requirements of the AM statute, guidance documents are provided to the PWS.
  • To identify asset-related infrastructure deficiencies, a Capacity Assessment Tool is utilized.
