Asset Management for Drinking Water Systems
9AM - 11:45 AM both mornings
This 2-part webinar series discusses the process of planning, implementing, and administering an Asset Management Program for drinking water systems. This class reviews asset management concepts, the components of an AM Plan and Program to comply with OEPA rules, and examines how Asset Management provides tools and a framework for prioritizing needs and extending the useful life of utility assets. Practical topics to aid in developing and implementing a program are covered, including inventories and condition assessments, BMP’s, preventative maintenance, capital improvement planning, and record-keeping. We will explore the roles of different people in an organization to implement Asset Management and the importance of updating the plan each year. Part 1 of this series will focus on the basics of Asset Management, Asset Management needs, and Asset Management inventories. Part 2 of this series focuses on the needs for proper Condition Assessment, how to assess the condition of a water distribution system, BMPs for Condition Assessment, along with proper Asset Management financial planning, budgeting, and rate setting.
Plan to attend both mornings. Each day is approved separately for 2.5 Drinking Water O&M Contact Hours.

Drone Applications for Water & Sewer Condition Assessment
10 - 11 AM
The use of the drone and its application to benefit water and sewer condition assessment. Using 4K and Infrared stills and videos to capture a clearer image of water towers and treatment plants. The drone can also help with active smoke testing by viewing areas not accessible by RCAP operators on ground level. The integration of drones and GIS gives the community a better eye in the sky of their water and sewer system. This training will discuss what is needed to operate a drone, and provide examples of how it has been used in the field to benefit water and sanitary utilities.

Instructions and Disclaimers
Instructor-led webinars enable busy local officials and staff the training opportunities they need to fit their schedules. Registration is required, and for many classes, space is limited. If an event fills to capacity and a waitlist is started, when practical we will try to add another class. RCAP will give local officials and operational staff first priority if we are not able to accommodate everyone.
