    Hi all, 

    I am currently trying to compile and consolidate various stormwater level of service KPI's for a university project.

    I have collated a fair few local and international examples, and gained some insight from the existing topics (CCTV Asset Maintenance etc.). However was hoping to supplement with expertise as well.

    As such, I was wondering whether anyone has any resources, examples or contacts that could contribute to my research? - These could include plans/reports, indicators and/or measures in relation to stormwater quality, capacity, service etc. 

    Thank you for your time,

    Hi Idris.

    AUS-SPEC, the IPWEA document series has a full pro active systems approach to maintenance including drainage.
    This is however mainly used for Asset Maintenance as opposed to Asset Management. Look up AUS-SPEC under the NARSPEC banner.

    Also, please look up "VAPAR", a new Company by recent Engineering Graduates who are using AI, Advanced Algorithm's  and Machine Learning to reduce the observation time for checking hours of CCTV footage of Stormwater and sewer pipes from two weeks of an Engineers time to two Minutes !!

    Nz councils have had LOS in their AMPs for many years and many council plans were reviewed by audit nz. This report provides a good assessment of various LOS.
