Prioritizing Aging Infrastructure Replacement

Wed, Sep 26, 2018 2:00 PM EDT

In this webinar, HDR and Bentley will discuss prioritizing aging infrastructure replacement:
  • HDR’s Sasa Tomic will discuss the needs for ageing infrastructure management by reviewing the current industry main-break failure and pipe replacement trends. His presentation will introduce the assessment of pipe risk of failure as the way to prioritize aging infrastructure replacement.  Dr. Tomic will discuss how hydraulic models can be used to define pipe criticality of failure and evaluate the water system resiliency.
  • Bentley’s Tom Walski will conclude showing how hydraulic modeling technology helps prioritize pipe renewals. He will discuss how criticality analysis results can be combined with another hydraulic modeling capability to help support decision making on the replacement and rehabilitation of distribution network pipes. He will also discuss the importance of isolation valves in minimizing the impact of pipe failures.
