PIPELINE infrastructure DATABASE (PIPEiD) is envisioned to be “a living database platform for advanced asset management” addressing all three major management levels including strategic, tactical, and operational that will assist drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater utilities of all sizes to sustain targeted level of service.
Purpose of the PIPEiD Project?
PIPEiD will assist water utilities in a more effective management of water pipeline infrastructure systems for performance, resiliency, and sustainability. PIPEiD will provide the secured, robust, and centralized web-based database platform to address all three major infrastructure asset management levels: strategic, tactical, and operational, and for water utilities of all sizes (small, medium, and large) across the country
Unique value of the PIPEiD Project?
No single data, modeling, or analysis system will meet every need for every user, but there is scientific basis and strength in pursuing complementary efforts while evolving to a more integrated, centralized platform of capabilities where the whole is more than the sum of the parts and new, transformative capabilities will emerge that will help water utilities to sustain targeted level of service with acceptable risk and lowers life-cycle cost for water pipeline infrastructure systems.
