This discussion underscores the importance of leveraging every available resource to avoid unnecessary excavations and streamline compliance processes.

★ Resource Optimization Through Asset Management: Delve into how water systems can optimize resources and planning through effective asset management. Learn about the strategies that allow systems to proactively manage, maintain, renew, and replace assets, thus securing funding and ensuring sustainable operations.
