Asset Management Plan

The Public Utilities Commission of the City of Sault Ste. Marie owns the water supply and distribution infrastructure and is responsible for the provision of safe, reliable, potable water at-cost to customers within the municipal services boundary of the City of Sault Ste. Marie. Potable water is also supplied to an area of the Rankin Reserve of the Batchewana First Nation through the same distribution system. The management, maintenance and operations of the water treatment plant, wells and the approximately 470 km of watermains in the distribution system are carried out by PUC Services Inc. under a long-term contract.

In partnership with AECOM Canada Ltd., PUC has developed an Asset Management Plan (AMP). An AMP helps organizations like PUC plan ahead so that they can get the most value from their assets and have the financial resources available to replace them when necessary. Assets are tangible things such as pipes, pumps and tanks that are components of a water system.

For PUC, that includes the infrastructure, equipment, and treatment processes at PUC Water Facilities, including the Water Treatment Plant, Gros Cap Intake Station, Shannon Well, Steelton Well, Lorna Well, PZ2 Booster Station and Goulais Well. The assessments will be used to determine the required intervention strategy, such as maintenance, rehabilitation, or replacement and suggestions for design efficiencies.

By understanding the full life cycle costs of its assets, PUC will make better, more informed and financially sustainable asset decisions.
