The goal of the program is to help systems identify the current condition of their assets and operations/maintenance practices to plan for short-, medium-, and long-term capital improvement projects. These tools and information will help the systems prepare for the future, train new staff, and communicate the needs of their system to their staff, governance, and customers. Contractors chosen by the AMPSS participant systems, from a pre-qualified pool, work with the systems to create the management tools at no cost to the system, other than providing staff time to the project. This presentation will discuss AMPSS, as well as other asset management funding opportunities offered by TWDB.
