I helped an asset manager to complete three water-related asset management plans (AMPs) to inform the 2018 Long Term Plan. He started with the stormwater AMP, which I then edited to make as clear and concise as possible. I drew on my cross-council experience (particularly related to freshwater planning) and my current work on that council’s long term plan consultation document to make suggestions regarding relevant legislation and research, and to ensure consistency with the long term plan content.
Then I transferred the common elements of the stormwater AMP into the water supply and wastewater asset management plans. From here, I identified what content in the 2015 versions of the water supply and wastewater AMPs could be retained, and what needed to be updated.
My client wrote the new content (including new levels of service and updates to the improvement plan). Then I completed the editing process for these two asset management plans.
Here’s his feedback: “THANK YOU very much for all your help. It has been superb to have someone else to assist with this process.”
