Opportunities and Obligations

Funding

  • DWSRF set-asides are used for asset management programs such as Facilities Improvement Plans (FIPs). An FIP includes capital projects, upgrades, and preventative maintenance.
  • A third-party contractor works with PWSs to provide AM training to systems in receiving principal forgiveness or below-market interest rates; this helps PWSs before closing on a DWSRF funded loan.

Regulatory

  • PWSs producing over 50 million gallons of water annually are required to have a Water Supply System Management Plan that covers asset management principles.

Assistance

  • Drinking water operators are offered a semiannual AM training put on by the state’s Center for Drinking Water Quality and the New England Water Works Association.
  • Technical assistance for PWS encourages AM planning.
