Dave Poole and Craig Fisher of Canadian Pacific (CP) co-presented “Risk Profiling of Rail Operations Based Wastewater Assessments” at the 17th Railroad Environmental Conference in Urbana, Illinois. The presentation focused on CP’s development and implementation of a risk-based asset management strategy which is based on optimizing wastewater infrastructure assets to reduce overall capital and operation and maintenance (O&M) costs, to ensure appropriate wastewater treatment level of service, and to achieve optimal safety and environmental performance objectives. Dave has assisted CP to implement this strategy by assisting with building a better understanding of the inherent risk profile of CP’s wastewater assets across North America.
