This research report assessed how water utilities could apply Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM) to new and existing infrastructure and evaluated the costs and benefits of such programs. RCM components were identified as well as how utility maintenance programs are currently developed and how such a program would be implemented. RCM pilot projects were completed with the Denver Water Board and Veolia Water Indianapolis. Costs and benefits are presented along with implementation procedures and Change Management recommendations. Includes CD.The excess capacity of utilities in normal load conditions, can be leveraged to provide maintenance cost savings and ... The correct scheduling and completion of preventive maintenance tasks is important to ensure equipment reliability and anbsp;...
