Underground Asset Management



Now and in future years, utilities will have to adapt to changing regulatory requirements, limited funding, increased populations, and capital repair and replacement programs resulting from an always aging infrastructure. These underground assets comprise wastewater collection, water distribution and stormwater drainage systems.
