Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) has just completed a 7-year Water Operator Partnership project sponsored by Australian Water Partnership, to assist the Kathmandu Upatyaka Khanepani Limited Kukl (KUKL) to develop and implement good asset management practices across their organisation.

The program was led by Graeme Bartle-Smith representing Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA), with valued support from Hunter Water and Logan City Council from 2017 to 2024. The project has enabled significant development and improvement in KUKL asset management.

Through the collaborative efforts of key individuals such as Stuart Horvath, Jennifer Maverick, Ashley Sneddon, Lisa Hammerton, Dean Palmer, and Dan Lupou from Hunter Water, along with Binit Rajil from Logan City Council, significant strides have been made in elevating KUKL's asset management strategies. Their dedication and expertise have played a pivotal role in the success of this project, fostering the development and implementation of robust asset management practices within KUKL.

The impact of this partnership extends far beyond the project timeline, leaving a lasting legacy of enhanced asset management capabilities within KUKL. As we reflect on the achievements of this initiative, we recognize the valuable contributions of all those who played a part in its success, paving the way for continued advancements in asset management practices across the water sector
