The Metropolitan Sewer District in Greater Cincinnati has embarked on a reliability journey that has been very successful. It has helped to improve the reliability and reduced reactive maintenance cost across the wastewater treatment division. A small, but very energetic portion of the journey has been the Preventive Maintenance Optimization program. Through this process we have reduced duplicate PM’s all over the treatment division. This process has also allowed us to verify the strategy on each asset type. We have also used it to help improve the award winning asset condition monitoring team. Overall MSDGC’s preventive maintenance optimization program has had an annual reduction in maintenance cost of $250,000.
