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.This much more tightly focused maintenance effort leads to quantum jumps in the performance of existing assets where these are sought. RCM was developed to help airlines draw up maintenance programs for new types of aircraft before they anbsp;...
