Our Asset Management focus is on minimizing lifetime cost through improved maintenance and timely rehabilitation. The Check-up Program for small systems (CUPSS) will be used to document an initial Asset Management Plan. Planning results will be incorporated into the utilities operating budget. Ohio Rural Community Assistance Program will assist the utility system with implementation by providing community specific Council / Board Member Training on the topic of Asset Management.

More advanced software may be recommended if the community'sasset management objectives exceed the database management capacity of CUPSS. More advanced options include commercially available computer maintenance management system (CMMS) and geographic information systems (GIS) software.
