The department is updating the Capacity Development Strategy for Existing Public Water Systems. Capacity development is a process for community and nontransient noncommunity public water systems to acquire and maintain adequate technical, managerial and financial capacity. America's Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) contains a requirement for states to update their capacity development strategies to include provisions for encouraging asset management at public water systems. The department created the Capacity Development Strategy for Existing Public Water Systems in 2000 with the assistance of an advisory committee. In order to meet the requirements of AWIA and the Safe Drinking Water Act, the department is reestablishing the advisory committee to solicit feedback on updates to the strategy and best practices for incorporating assets.
