When
August 4, 2020 • 10:00 a.m.– 3:00 p.m. (PST)
Online


0.4 WA DW Continuing Education Units
This course Google Earth Mapping and Asset Management Workshop is now offered as an online two-part series. Part 1 will take place from 10:00am to 12:00pm and Part 2 will take place from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. Please follow the link below to register.


Participants must attend both sessions to earn CEUs.
Participants should download and install the free Google Earth Pro software prior to the class (google.com/earth/)

Morning Session:
Mapping a utility’s assets can greatly assist with developing an asset management plan.
Participants will receive a step-by-step tutorial on how to get started mapping their system’s assets using Google Earth Pro for project planning, public presentations and developing capital improvement plans.

Afternoon Session:
Asset management planning plays a significant role in the overall financial sustainability of a utility. With proper planning, the useful life of equipment can be extended, emergencies can be avoided, and overall costs will be reduced.

A capital improvement plan (CIP) prioritizes the replacement or installation of infrastructure assets. It includes the forecasting and budgeting of capital outlay and is an integral part of the budgeting and rate-setting process for even very small systems.

Sustainable Financial Management Planning for Water Utilities Webinar

Sustainable Financial Management Planning for Water Utilities Webinar

Communities across the country range in abilities to successfully navigate financial options for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure. The process of accessing funding and financing can be a barrier to investing in water infrastructure, especially for resource-constrained and smaller communities. These water sector investments can be crucial to supporting local jobs and protecting public health in the community. State-level funders and philanthropic foundations have a unique opportunity to revitalize water infrastructure in communities needing it most. With these public and private funds working together, critical funding gaps in the water sector can be addressed. You are invited to attend a one-hour webinar to learn about ways coordination between funding agencies is occurring in states across the country. The webinar will also discuss opportunities for state-level agencies to partner with foundations on water infrastructure investments.Time
