The QLDC region has experienced significant growth and demand on its aging 3 Waters network. The nature of the buried infrastructure makes it very difficult to ascertain the condition of the pipe networks (and therefore optimal asset renewal replacement timings).
The supplier market has developed a range of non intrusive – non destructive testing and assessment devices and technologies that enables investigation and condition assessment using remote and in-situ devices, along with associated post processing of data. Through a two stage process, Council are seeking to understand the New Zealand market offerings for these devices/processes which may include a full ‘conditional assessment service offering’, generating comprehensive accurate conditional assessment asset data, enabling more accurate asset management planning. The conditional assessment data encompasses; pipe condition, pipe material, and pipe integrity. This data, in turn enables estimates for remaining (pipe) network life and estimated renewals’ and replacement’s timing.
