Speaking on the release of the consultancy’s 2013 Strategic Directions in the US Water Utility Report, Wallis-Lage said: “We need to realise the operational benefits that we can get of investing into our infrastructure, the benefits of reduced operating costs, the benefits of water conservation, the benefits of capturing non-revenue water."

Wallis-Lage said that that the combination of a lack of funding and aging infrastructure means asset management is now “on the front burner” for the US water industry. "I think we are at a point now where we see the value in it and we see the value and benefits in the UK and the value and benefits in Australia, and we see how we can utilise that here," she concluded.
