Extend the life of your water system, even on a budget
SUEZ Water System Asset Management
Today this aging pipe infrastructure is rapidly deteriorating, resulting in approximately 250,000 water main breaks every year. Decaying pipes also suffer from corrosion and can start leaching lead from soldered joints, creating water quality issues. To try to address these pipe network problems, several states have recently voted new laws requiring water utilities to implement a water system asset management plan that includes a detailed water main renewal program.
SUEZ pipeline asset management for water utilities is a risk-based, strategic process that helps allocate your pipe replacement budget to the most critical areas of your system and avoid digging up and replacing pipes that still have years of service life remaining.
We use multiple state-of-the-art solutions including machine learning technology and acoustic condition assessments to predict what pipes are most likely to fail and choose the options (cleaning, rehabilitation or replacement) that fit your budget and are most appropriate to correct each pipe network problem. Our objective is to help you maximize results, and reduce costs and system downtime.
Pipe Condition Assessment and Risk Based Analysis
This innovative solution helps solve pipe network problems by calculating the remaining wall thickness of buried water mains and using artificial intelligence to determine the most appropriate corrective action. Our trained field crews can move rapidly through a water network without disrupting service.

Pipe Asset Management Program
A variety of factors - from material, pressure and size to soil type and climate conditions - affect how long a pipe will continue to function after it’s installed in your water utility system. Since it’s so hard to anticipate which pipes will burst, half of the pipes typically replaced by water utilities today are still in good shape.
Now there’s a better alternative — Pipe Asset Management services from SUEZ. Our annual water utility network evaluation program, combined with strategic pipeline condition assessment, help us predict what pipes are most likely to fail. This allows you to devote your resources where they’re needed, instead of digging up and replacing pipes that still have years of service life remaining.
