This report is an output of the fourth research track (Track 4) of WERF’s strategic asset management research program ‘Asset Management Communication and Implementation’ (RFPP #06-SAM-1 CO). Track 4 was developed to address ‘remaining asset life’, with the overall objective of contributing to the development of techniques, tools and methods for estimating residual life of wastewater assets. Track 4 research was planned to be undertaken in a staged manner, so as to provide a stepwise development of concepts and protocols. 

To this end, the research team previously produced a synthesis of knowledge in relation to “end of life” and “remaining asset life”. This report builds on this material and presents a road map for building asset management capacity through the development of a practitioners guide to economic decision making.
