Asset Management - Town of Gibsons

Water Pipeline in Water Treatment Plant

Town of Gibsons’ infrastructure provides a variety of services to the community, including:

  1. clean drinking water
  2. collecting and treating wastewater
  3. safely collecting and directing stormwater
  4. safe roads and transportation
  5. recreation areas and facilities
What is Asset Management? 

Asset Management is the process the Town of Gibsons uses to make sure these services are provided in the most cost-effective, reliable, and sustainable way, using the resources we have. Good asset management planning will help the Town of Gibsons plan for the long term, make effective operations and maintenance plans, and prioritize infrastructure projects. The Town of Gibsons takes a holistic approach to service delivery by including both engineered assets, like roads and pipes, as well as Natural Assets, like the Gibsons Aquifer and ponds in its asset management program.

The Town of Gibsons adopted its first Asset Management Policy in 2015 and started building its formal Asset Management Program the following year. The program is a collection of documents, people, information, tools, and processes that help staff and Council weigh performance, risk, and cost, in order to make the best possible decisions re) how to use the Town’s (limited) resources.
