Municipalities must meet their existing infrastructure needs and have the capacity available to accommodate future growth needs.
It is important that municipalities consider the impact of developments and a growing population on a municipality’s infrastructure requirements for:
- Water treatment
- Waste water treatment and solid waste facilities
It is also critically important that municipalities understand how long their new and existing infrastructure will last. Asset management provides the foundation for detailed, consistent information to improve infrastructure need projections and ensure the most efficient use of limited financial resources.
