EPA Publishes 2018 State Asset Management Initiatives Document

EPA’s Sustainable Systems Team has published the 2018 State Asset Management Initiatives Document. This document is an update to the 2012 document and is for state agencies to learn about the various state asset management promotion initiatives. The categories of initiatives include funding, regulatory, assistance, and internal activities. The document also shows an increase of twenty states promoting asset management through funding initiatives since the 2012 version. This information should be helpful for states as they think ahead about the new America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) requirements that will now mandate state primacy agencies to provide a description of how they will encourage water systems to develop asset management plans and provide technical assistance in their triennial capacity development reports.
