Sewer Asset Management Committee
As part of a consent order issued by the Department of Environmental Conservation, the Town of Hague is required to develop an asset management plan for its sewer infrastructure.
At its regular meeting in September of 2014, the Hague Town Board appointed a Sewer Asset Management Committee to develop this plan. The Town is fortunate to have Steve Grimm of the New York Rural Water Association working with the Committee as an advisor and facilitator. Steve attends all Committee meetings and offers advice on a wide variety of topics, including asset management, funding sources, best practice sharing and technical information. He also works directly with Hague’s Waste Water Treatment Plant staff, providing technical assistance. The New York Rural Water Association provides these services to the Town free of charge.
Members of the Committee:
- Edna Frasier (Town of Hague Supervisor)
- Ginger Kuenzel (Town of Hague Town Board Member)
- Diane Trudeau (Town of Hague Bookkeeper and Secretary to Supervisor)
- Jim Beaty (Public Member)
- Chris Navitsky (Public Member)
- Phil Smith (Public Member)
- Steve Grimm, Facilitator (New York Rural Water Association)
Core criteria for an asset management plan:
- What is the current state of assets?
- What is the desired level of service?
- What are the critical assets for sustained performance?
- What is the minimum lifecycle cost?
- What are the long-term funding strategies?
