Asset management standards

Our collection of standards for our built assets contain general specifications for design, installation, commissioning, maintenance and operation.

They outline requirements specific to Melbourne Water, based on our experience and operating context, which are not explicitly stated within industry standards. They aim to ensure works are delivered efficiently, with the lowest whole-of-life costs within a defined risk profile.
