Asset Management Plan

Adequate municipal infrastructure-such as roads, bridges, and underground water and sewage pipes-are essential to economic development, citizen safety, and quality of life.  The majority of public infrastructure in Canada is the responsibility of the municipal government.  Good asset management results in informed and strategically sound decisions that optimize investments, better manage risk - including risk of infrastructure failure - and take into account the potential impact of other factors, such as climate change.  

Asset Management Plans are currently based on the guidelines provided in the Ontario Ministry of Infrastructure's Building Together Guide for Municipal Asset Management Plans.  

In 2014, Southwest Middlesex engaged Dillon Consulting to assist in the preparation of an asset management plan using the best currently available data.  This data was updated in 2017.  Throughout 2018, staff have been working to gather condition information for our infrastructure to enhance in order to refine our asset management plan.
