MURRAY, D. J. SCIENCE BRIEF: CONDITION ASSESSMENT OF COLLECTION SYSTEMS. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/F-07/014, 2007.

Description:

To assess the condition of a collection system, data and information are gathered through observation, direct inspection, investigation, and indirect monitoring and reporting. An analysis of the data and information helps determine the structural, operational, and performance status of capital infrastructure assets. Condition assessment also includes failure analysis to determine the causes of infrastructure failures and to develop ways to prevent future breakdowns. Condition assessment enhances the ability of utilities to make technically sound judgments regarding asset management.
