Recharge in the Southwest by DBS&A/Clear Creek
Recharge in New Mexico was authorized in 1999 by the Groundwater Storage and Recovery Act, and the first demonstration project applications were filed with the New Mexico Office of the State Engineer (OSE) in 2007. Arizona and California have much longer histories of recharge projects. This presentation will provide an overview of the history and requirements for implementation of MAR projects in New Mexico, an overview of the current projects and future plans, and will provide information on recharge technologies and projects from other parts of the Southwest. Amy Ewing, P.G. from DBS&A and Geno Mammini from Clear Creek Associates will co-present.
Asset Management and Life Cycle Analysis by Jennifer Hill, P.E.
Asset management is used to minimize the life cycle costs of asset ownership while maintaining required service levels. Key to assigning values to assets under an asset management approach is assessing the condition of the asset and keeping track of the cost of repairs. This presentation will review basic concepts of asset management life cycle costing, components of life cycle cost, and give examples of decision making for asset replacement based on cost data.
