PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE “It is one great purpose of the Park to supply to the hundreds of thousands of tired workers, who have no opportunity to spend their summers in the country, a specimen of God’s handiwork that shall be to them, inexpensively, what a month or two in the White Mountains or the Adirondacks is, at great cost, to those in easier circumstances.” – Frederick Law Olmsted, Architect and Designer of NYC Central Park

Our commitment to preservation and maintenance of public spaces

P

ublic works departments across North America have an enormous responsibility for the preservation and maintenance of parks and public spaces in our communities. Even though the vast majority of your community’s “physical assets” go unnoticed, citizens are aware of and appreciate our public spaces every single day. These spaces are the lifethread of our communities. Baby Boomers created the suburban sprawl. The house, with a two-car garage and a private large yard, was the dream of the generation—their personal escape from the city. Their park was their backyard. Today’s

Millennials have a greater desire to live within the city, rather than the suburbs; taking a subway, rather than having a driveway. They are more energy and environmentally conscious than their Baby Boomer parents. Our cities are in the midst of change. The demand for housing in inner cities, and the influx of Millennials, has placed a higher expectation for quality parks and public spaces. In many cases, our “livability” standards are rated by the quality and number of public spaces and parks.

Public works professionals are planning and responding to this demand in new and creative ways. Streets which were once thoroughfares are now being viewed as potential green spaces by reducing paving, eliminating parking, planting trees, and adding bike lanes and sidewalks. Drainage ways and stormwater retention ponds often have dual purposes as public parks and ballfields. Courtyards and plazas provide convenient locations for food trucks and sidewalk food

vendors to serve as al fresco lunch and dinner spots. Creation of the public space is just the first step. As the use and maturity of the space increase, so does the need for maintenance. From lighting to landscaping, and cleanliness to safety, neglect of the space once it is built will not be tolerated. For public works officials, making that case to elected officials and coming up with creative, cost-effective ways to deal with those issues is critical.

At APWA, the Facilities and Grounds Technical Committee is looking at these issues and providing innovative ideas on how we as a profession can address this growing demand. If you have an issue that you would like assistance in solving, please join and use the infoNOW Community. Together, we will meet the demands for public spaces and parks, and create even better, more livable communities.

“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” – Aldo Leopold (1887-1948), American author, scientist, ecologist and environmentalist

TECHNICAL COMMITTEE NEWS

Facilities and Grounds Committee: Focused on

networking and education

R

egardless of what aspect of public works you are in, the work of your agency’s facilities and grounds professional affects you and vice versa. Facilities and grounds managers are consistently challenged to accommodate community initiatives with minimal funding and even less time. They are tasked with sustainability initiatives like green roofs, rain gardens and energy conservation. Many communities have opted to repurpose buildings such as schools to turn them into enterprise zones or public buildings. They manage budget cuts and cost reductions without decreasing services and adhere to ADA compliance requirements regardless of the weather. They improve public parks and grounds while combating invasive species of plants and insects all while still focusing on the challenges of daily upkeep. With all these challenges, where is a facilities and grounds manager to go for support? The APWA Facilities and Grounds Technical Committee’s mission is to provide APWA members with the resources for exchanging and developing ideas, information, skills, knowledge, and technologies for the operation, management, and maintenance of public buildings, grounds, and parks. The committee also recommends and advances APWA policies and positions concerning public buildings and grounds issues. This year’s Facilities and Grounds Committee focused their efforts on networking and education. The committee decided to network with other facilities professionals by holding their face-to-face spring meeting in Baltimore in conjunction with the National Facilities Management and Technology Conference. An education session titled “Here are the keys… Now what” was presented by two of the committee members in which they shared their experience with learning how to manage public facilities.

Phyllis Muder Professional Development Program Manager American Public Works Association Kansas City, Missouri

The committee dedicated most of their business meeting to working on their Committee Charter and on developing their Facilities and Grounds education track that they will host at PWX in Orlando this year. This year’s committee has a great mix of facilities and grounds expertise. The Board Liaison is Mary Joyce Ivers who shares her experience as the City of Ventura’s Fleet and Facilities Manager. Jeffery P. Brown, P.E., who is the Engineering & Infrastructure Director for Cumberland County in Fayetteville, N.C., chairs the committee. Other members of the committee include: •

Brian Carthan, PWLF, who is the Park Services Manager for the City of Oakland, California David J. Pinsonneault who is the DPW Director for the Town of Lexington, Massachusetts Gary L. Rank who is the Facilities Manager for the City of West Des Moines, Iowa Mark A. Whitfield, PLS, who is the Director of Public Works for the City of Milford, Delaware; and continued on page 6

Shonte S. Eldridge who is the Chief Special Projects for the City of Baltimore, Maryland, is reluctantly stepping down from the committee due to assuming additional and different work responsibilities. Fortunately, we have found a wonderful replacement for the remainder of the term, Steve Sharkey who is the Director of the City of Baltimore’s Department of General Services. The committee is deeply appreciative of the hospitality of both Shonte and Steve in hosting the committee’s spring meeting in their wonderful city.

If you are a facilities and grounds professional and would like to network with other APWA professionals, then the Facilities and Grounds infoNOW Community is a great place to start. The APWA Connect communities provide a means for PW professionals across the continent to ask questions, share insights and provide

resources. Go to the APWA website, click on the Resources tab and select APWA Connect. There are communities for all aspects of public works so feel free to sign up for any and all that apply to you. We are also always in need of members interested in writing articles for the APWA Reporter and other APWA publications. If you would like to be part of next year’s Facilities and Grounds edition of the Reporter or would like to become more involved, please contact the staff liaison, Phyllis Muder, at pmuder@apwa.net.

Excellence in Snow and Ice Control Award

City of Columbia,Missouri, Public Works Street Division The City of Columbia, Mo., Street Maintenance personnel are tasked with snow and ice control on over 1,360 lane miles of streets during inclement weather. Maintenance personnel are responsible for plowing snow and treating 275 lane miles of first priority streets and 191 lane miles of second priority streets. The City’s downtown area is split into two districts, north and south, and maintenance personnel are responsible for plowing and treating this area as well.

A

PWA’s Excellence in Snow and Ice Control Award was established to promote excellence in the management and administration of public works snow and ice operations, and to promote the best practices in snow and ice removal while minimizing environmental impacts. The award will be presented at the 2017 APWA North American Snow Conference, April 23-26, in Des Moines, Iowa. Following are this year’s recipients.

The City of Columbia has a variety of equipment in its fleet used for snow and ice control. A breakdown of the fleet includes 12 one-ton pick-ups, of which four are compressed natural gas (CNG) equipped with plows and spreaders; nine singleaxle dump trucks equipped with plows and spreaders; 12 tandem-axle dump trucks equipped with plows and spreaders, of which one is CNG; one tandem-axle brine applicator truck; two one-ton brine applicator trucks; one motorgrader with wing plow; four backhoes and two twelve-foot push boxes; two skidsteers; one rubber tire loader to load salt; one rubber tire loader with push box; three snow blowers; one garden tractor with front blade and drop box spreader used for public sidewalk plowing; and three salt buggies to spread salt on public pedways. The City’s salt storage facility was designed in a way to provide safe storage and containment of materials and reduce impacts from stormwater runoff. The salt dome safely houses 5,000 tons of granular salt in an enclosed, locked storage facility. Additional structures onsite store and protect other materials such as manufactured sand, liquid calcium chloride, brine, beet juice and related brine-making equipment. The green space surrounding the salt storage facility was landscaped and a detention basin was constructed which collects stormwater runoff from the lot. Saltwater grass was introduced to the landscape around the detention basin providing habitat for birds and insects while enhancing the aesthetic appearance of the facility.

City of Montgomery, Ohio, Public Works Department The City of Montgomery’s primary objective and commitment to their constituents is “Snow and ice control on roadways and public property is an essential municipal service, necessary for public safety, daily mobility, services and other economic transactions and the elimination of delays for emergency vehicles, the motoring public and pedestrians at public facilities.” Another mantra of the City of Montgomery is to deliver services that are of outstanding quality, sound financially and with quality customer service—“Better, Cheaper and Faster.” In 2015, the Public Works Department installed a liquid tank system with a total capacity of 17,000 gallons of a combination of liquid alternative products to supplement snow operations. The Public Works Department researched and investigated various liquid alternatives and approaches and ultimately chose a liquid product called “Ice B’Gone Magic” which is a combination of 50-60% magnesium chloride and 40-50% distillers condensed solubles (DCS). The liquid tanks system is set up to allow staff to use salt brine, a mixture of salt brine and Ice B’Gone Magic, or straight Ice B’Gone Magic depending on the temperatures and forecasts.

Public Works Department staff participates in classroom seminars provided by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) regarding safe driving techniques, the latest technology and research, and best practice approaches. Each year the Public Works Officials of Southwest Ohio (PWOSO) hosts a “Snow Plow Roadeo” in which public works staff from a variety of jurisdictions competes in an obstacle course to prepare drivers for the upcoming winter season while emphasizing safe driving practices. The City of Montgomery Public Works Department is actively involved in PWOSO and provides support and sends staff to this event on an annual basis.

Why we exhibit – and why you should too! Chris Evers Pavement Technology Inc. Vero Beach, Florida Past President, APWA Florida Chapter

If you’ve never exhibited or attended PWX before, words won’t do it justice. The Orange County Convention Center will be packed with 80,000 square feet of world-class equipment, products and service providers encompassing all things public works. Whether it’s the latest pavement management software, robotic mowers, drones, asphalt patch trucks, sweepers, fill in the blank—it’s going to be there. With nearly 7,000 attendees working their way through the floor, your company will have a myriad of opportunities to interact with decision makers from across North America and beyond. This has to be the top reason to exhibit. It would take me many months to interact with the number of prospects I can see in these four days of August. Seeing old friends and making new ones is part of what has made PWX a must for us. Public works professionals are coming not just to look at your products, or to “trick or treat” your booth giveaways, they are here to look for solutions to their most pressing challenges and to build relationships with you. But if you aren’t here, it’s almost like your solution doesn’t exist, like you don’t exist. For these four days in August they will be thinking about the people at PWX, not the people who stayed home. They may find another solution from a competitor who was savvy enough to show up. Don’t be left behind. Public works professionals want you; we want you here at PWX Orlando! It goes without saying that you must be present to win. Beyond that, wouldn’t it be nice to have some help? What I love about PWX is that APWA really feels like a member of your team. They work hard to make it a positive, winning experience for you and your exhibit staff. APWA is always here to help you pick the best available location for your booth or bulk space. Do you want higher visibility? There are a multitude of sponsorships too that your APWA team can introduce to you. APWA also knows that sometimes you just can’t leave the PWX floor long enough to grab some nourishment, so they go the extra mile by providing an

n 2017, the year my chapter hosts PWX, I will celebrate my fifteenth year as a member of the American Public Works Association. Furthermore, the company I work for has exhibited at and sponsored various APWA events for over 40 years. Over the past 20 years I’ve attended or exhibited at well over a hundred conferences and trade shows. Some were great and some were not so great. I consider myself a connoisseur of such gatherings and was tasked by the Florida Chapter with being the Co-Chair of the 2017 PWX Exhibitor Committee. Below I offer my perspective as to why someone in the private sector shouldn’t miss the chance to exhibit at PWX Orlando!

exhibitors lounge with refreshments available. They provide opportunities to give presentations to folks on the PWX floor at various locations strategically located throughout the Expo. APWA provides non-compete time to ensure that PWX attendees have time to interact with exhibitors, not just window-shop between educational sessions. And who can forget the roving beer stations that seem to materialize from thin air just to keep your potential clients on the floor (no pun intended) and engaged! APWA has been refining this show for decades and they know how to make it a success for you, and with you here in Orlando it will be a success! The companies I’ve had the pleasure of working for have all exhibited at APWA. They know that it’s not just about what it does for the company; it’s about supporting the public works profession. It’s definitely good karma to support the industry responsible for putting food on your table. It’s so much more than that though. The longer you are in public works you see that we really are a family. I’m sure every industry says that and they probably mean it. However, this family is responsible for making your country great. What does great really mean? A country can’t be great unless it has infrastructure that can transport people and goods efficiently and safely. It can’t be great without clean drinking water, disposal of solid waste, treatment of stormwater, rapid removal of snow after winter storms strike, modern fleets and facilities and first-class parks. Finally, it can’t stay great without a way to respond when disaster strikes and help the community back to its feet. That’s what this family does to little or no fanfare. Not just sometimes, all the time. Every minute of every day. And public works departments couldn’t do that without you, the folks who solve problems! That’s why when there is an opportunity to give back, we do it in a big way. Not just some of the time, all

of the time. Public works is worth it. We feel passionate about what we do and just like most companies in public works, we want a chance to prove that we can help this family be the best it can be. Over the years we know that the more we give back to this organization (time and treasure) the more the family members in it will pay a little more attention to the things we do to make our piece of the country and state great. Our contribution is a reflection of our commitment to the spectacular communities we have across North America and beyond. We know our contribution allows for more education to take place, more networking opportunities to occur, better visibility for great products to be showcased and new processes to be discovered by these same communities’ public works departments. How do you put a value on that? The only thing we’re missing is your contribution of time and treasure. Will you join us at PWX Orlando August 27-30? We know the products and services you provide could help our family be the best it can be. There are so many fantastic benefits to exhibiting at PWX Orlando in 2017 that there really is something for everyone. I’ve personally been blessed by success at what I do and every year has been better than the previous one. So if you see folks like me spending more time year after year devoted to this family we call APWA, now you won’t have to wonder why. And if you see the same companies always exhibiting at PWX, you’ll understand. You get what you give. Join us, your public works family. We hope to see you in 2017 for four days in August, PWX Orlando! Chris Evers is a Past President of the APWA Florida Chapter. He can be reached at (727) 638-1699 or cevers@pavetechinc.com.

2016 National Public Works Week in Charleston County Department looks to expand program in 2017

Margarita Vedders Customer Service Liaison Charleston County Public Works Charleston, South Carolina

I

was tasked with putting together a program for last year’s National Public Works Week (NPWW) event during the week of May 15-21, 2016. As a new employee, I didn’t know what challenges I would be faced with, such as how to get the community involved or what was done in the past. The Director, James Neal, shared his vision of an outreach program to promote and grow awareness of the value of public works services to the community with a primary focus on schools and communities in rural areas. I thought it was a terrific idea to start with the young, future leaders to educate them about the value and necessity of public works in our daily lives, and to promote the public works profession and the importance of communication and teamwork. All divisions in our department jumped on board and worked together as a team to create a great week of outreach and education. The first step was to order the 2016 NPWW Poster from the APWA website. I was impressed that there was already a framework in place on the site for the type of outreach that we envisioned. A

BECAUSE SUSTAINABILITY IS A PRIORITY

DRIVABILITY MATTERS “When I bike to work or around town, I am getting exercise and reducing my impact on the environment. At work, I analyze the environmental impact of infrastructure, including roadways. Asphalt pavements are 100% recyclable and can be produced with energy-saving warm-mix technologies. That makes asphalt the sustainable choice, whether you are on two, four, or even 18 wheels. That matters.” -Lianna Miller | Engineer | Commuter

“how-to” guide with tips on getting started was included, as well as a general schedule/template to follow to create a successful program. In addition, I found suggestions for events and activities for students of all ages from elementary to high school. Bi-weekly meetings and e-mail updates kept everyone in the department continuously informed of the logistics and schedule. I began by contacting schools in the rural and most disadvantaged areas of the county. A major challenge that I faced in arranging visits/activities was that most of our schools were conducting mandatory year-end testing during that week. We were able to coordinate visits to two elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school. Public works-themed coloring pages were given to the elementary students by grade category for a coloring contest. Then, I reached out to libraries in our county and arranged for our department to participate in story reading and after-school activities/programs. We offered to donate the “Chipper’s Adventures in Public Works” book to add to their children’s collection and they gladly accepted. Additionally, I created an informational pamphlet highlighting the valuable services that the Public Works Department provides to the community and arranged for libraries to display them for the general public. A banner and different types of construction and maintenance equipment were exhibited daily at the front of our building in recognition of NPWW. Display cases were set up throughout the building with models, tools, gadgets, and information from each of our divisions further highlighting our services. One display proudly showcased our APWA accreditation as well as our Director’s APWA Top Ten Public Works Leader of the Year

The television in the lobby’s rotunda, as well as a tablet in one of the cases, displayed slideshow presentations of the equipment we use daily and various Public Works Department employees hard at work. In the main entrance, a table was set up to display/distribute Public Works Department information and pamphlets. Carter McMillan, our Community Representative, and I engaged citizens coming into the building to further promote awareness about NPWW. We passed out “freshly popped” popcorn and bottles of water. Coloring contest entries from our elementary school students were displayed for our Field Operations crew judges to cast their ballots. continued on page 20 www.apwa.net

The division teams provided great presentations and demonstrations to the students at Baptist Hill Middle/ High School in Hollywood and Lincoln Middle/High School in McClellanville. Ryan Petersen, the department’s Technical Supervisor, presented a systematic and comprehensive approach using the eight elements of asset management as well as career opportunities within the division. Our Engineering Manager, Matthew Fountain, showed the students what engineers and surveyors do and how they improve the county’s infrastructure. He engaged the students by playing “I Spy” identifying things wrong in construction inspection pictures. The students eagerly participated in a demonstration of the power of water by Stephen Barnes, our Stormwater Illicit Detection Technician, and were amazed at how it crushed a gallon paint can. Our Field Operations Vac Truck crew wowed the students with a demonstration of the suction pressure of the Vac Truck by lifting a cast-iron manhole cover. Students were eager to climb into the truck and have their pictures taken following the demonstration.

The final day we tallied up the votes for the coloring contest and visited two elementary schools. Chris Wannamaker, our Stormwater Program Manager, and I visited St. James-Santee Elementary for a career fair in the morning. It was great seeing the reactions on the students’ faces when we asked if they knew what public works was and what we did. We had some blank stares, some that pointed out fixing roads, and others spraying for mosquitos. It was very rewarding to have them asking questions about what we do, what careers we have, the hours worked, and the pay. In the afternoon, we were at Edith L. Frierson Elementary School on Wadmalaw Island. I had story time reading and activities with the kindergarten and first grade students. Our Mosquito Control and Stormwater Divisions made presentations to grades second through fifth. Our very own Mosquito Control Taxonomist, Ed Harne, gave an amazing presentation that captured the attention of the children, and had them all intrigued with mosquitos. One question that he asked throughout the presentation and used to reinforce the concept of the mosquito’s relationship to water was, “What do mosquitos need to live?” After asking a couple of times, the students enthusiastically replied “Water!” Taylor Anthony, Stormwater Administrative Assistant, also gave an incredible demonstration on how pollution is affected by rainfall with the division’s Enviroscape model. Ms. Anthony said, “The students were very polite, passionate, and receptive to my presentation.” We closed the day with our Stormwater/Technical Manager, Frank Pandullo, announcing the winners of the coloring contest, and giving them their ribbons, certificates of participation, and prizes/awards. In conclusion, my overall experience was invigorating and joyful. It was very satisfying to see everything fall into place. The teamwork and collaboration from the divisions in Public Works as well as the communication throughout the planning and implementation of the program made it all possible. Participation in the arranged activities and feedback from the students was awesome. They had no idea before our visit(s) what the Public Works Department did for their community and the various career opportunities available. The teachers, guidance counselors, and principals were very appreciative of our efforts and thanked us for coming. They expressed that they would like us to continue coming back, especially for their career fairs. I am positive that our department left a favorable and lasting impression with everyone that we encountered. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and can’t wait for 2017’s NPWW.

Storybook reading and activities were coordinated with the Dorchester County and John L. Dart Libraries in conjunction with their afterschool programs. The children were intrigued by “Chipper’s Adventures in Public Works” and fascinated with the Polaroid pictures taken with our P.W. Paws display board cutout. The hands-on activities from the Public Works workbooks were a big hit with the kids, as well as the pencils, crayons, and stickers distributed. The smiles on their faces and the enthusiasm showing in their work were amazing. Some of the children had so much fun that they didn’t want to leave when their parents came to pick them up!

Our department plans to stand on the success of our NPWW 2016 Program; however, we are looking to expand our educational and outreach program for 2017. We will continue to reach out to students of all ages through the schools and library programs in the county, and plan to attend as many career fairs as time permits. We will expand the educational outreach program to target other venues in our community to engage with an adult audience. We plan to use the program designed for NPWW 2017 throughout the year as well as be more visible and active within our community. We will strive to continually educate the community about, and promote the value of, services provided by the Charleston County Public Works Department.

Dam Removal: A lengthy public decision-making process leads to a successful outcome The Exeter River, which meanders through the heart of historic downtown, before and after the removal of the Great Dam and fish ladder.

Jennifer Perry, P.E., Public Works Director, Town of Exeter, New Hampshire, and member, APWA Small Cities/Rural Communities Committee; Paul Vlasich, P.E., Town Engineer, Town of Exeter, New Hampshire; and Peter Walker, Principal, Environmental Services, Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc., Bedford, New Hampshire It is one of the largest dam removal projects in New Hampshire history—not to mention one of the most complex. Deftly and carefully balancing a constrained budget, public needs, stakeholder expectations, and regulatory considerations were critical to successfully navigating the 16-year journey resulting in the decommissioning of the Great Dam on the Exeter River.

A Great Dilemma

The decision to remove the Great Dam, a reinforced concrete run-of-river dam measuring 136 feet long by 16 feet high and located along the Exeter River in southeastern New Hampshire, was anything but easy. Burdened with high maintenance costs, the Town-owned dam was also a source of safety and environmental liabilities. In 2000, the Town of Exeter was notified by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) Dam Bureau of numerous safety deficiencies with the Great Dam— most notably its inability to safely withstand a 50-year storm event. Additionally, the fish ladder installed on the dam in the late 1960s was inefficient at allowing upstream passage of diadromous fish, including river herring (alewives and blueback herring), American eel, and rainbow smelt. The Great Dam, situated on the Exeter River just above the tidal influence of the

Squamscott River and Great Bay further downstream, presented a significant barrier to coastal fisheries that were the original reason for native and colonist settlements in this region. Despite this, the structure was cherished by many in the community of 15,000 for its historical relevance. There had been a dam of some sort in this location for more than 350 years, and the existing structure was a contributing element of the surrounding historic district. Citizens also valued its aesthetic appeal and the recreational opportunities, mostly fishing and boating, created by its impoundment. Moreover, the Great Dam provided a critical role in the water supply for the Town and a privately owned mill complex. These considerations—along with anticipated ecological and climate resiliency benefits of dam removal—factored heavily into discussions surrounding the Great Dam’s fate.

Public Decision-Making: Feasibility Phase The proposal to remove the dam came after years of engineering and scientific study, as well as much public discussion. Over the course of a decade, the Town of Exeter commissioned seven studies focusing on issues associated with repair, replacement, or removal of the dam. Shortly after the 2000 NHDES Letter of Deficiency, the Town studied the hydraulic effects of various structural dam modifications on the riverine system. A dam removal scenario was not seriously considered at that time, though, because the impoundment created by the dam was a significant source of the Town’s water supply.


water supply river intake; impacts to other water users; floodwater climate change comparisons; cultural resource mitigation; river bottom adjustments to allow fish migrations; and impacts to structures, private property, and recreation. The Feasibility Study demonstrated that the removal of the Great Dam would not only be technically feasible—but that it would have a variety of positive community and ecological effects. It also identified mitigation strategies to limit any adverse or unintended effects. Many public informational outreach meetings were held to discuss the pros and cons of a number of alternatives, including various dam structural modifications and dam removal. Ultimately, the citizens had the final say on the decision, with the passage of a warrant article on the Exeter Town Warrant on March 11, 2014, which allocated $1.8 million to remove the Great Dam. By 2006, it was clear that, despite earlier approval of design funds, the community was not supportive of a proposed $17 million surface water treatment plant and pumping station needed to replace an aging drinking water facility that was flood prone and challenged with meeting ever-tightening water quality standards. The Town began to explore ways of diversifying water supplies by integrating groundwater resources with surface water. Subsequently, a $6.3 million groundwater treatment plant was designed and constructed to treat water from reactivated and recommissioned gravel packed wells. The new integrated water supply allowed for a fresh consideration of a dam removal alternative. And with this, natural resource Exeter’s official seal features an alewife, signifying the importance of the coastal management fishery to this Town’s history. agencies stepped forward to advocate for the environmental benefits of dam removal— particularly to diadromous fish, water quality, and resiliency to climate change. With interest in the Great Dam’s removal revitalized the Town commissioned the Great Dam Removal Feasibility and Impact Study. The 2013 study addressed other issues not fully contemplated by earlier ones. These included: river geomorphic response; adjustments to the Town’s

Design, Permitting, and Construction: Considering Multiple Factors

Removing the dam wasn’t as easy as simply demolishing the concrete structure and trucking it away. The river bed had been regraded during construction of the dam in the early 1900s, and simply removing the concrete dam from the river would have left behind a steep river section that would have been a barrier to upstream fish migration. Furthermore, the dam was located adjacent to several historic buildings—even tied into masonry walls not owned by the Town. And, the riverbed elevations still played a role in maintaining water levels upriver at the Town’s drinking water intake in the river. Construction plans, therefore, had to include re-contouring the river bottom to a very specific planform, profile, and cross-section to optimize upstream fish passage, ensure stream bank stability, and maintain minimum water levels at the water supply intake. It was a lengthy process to build consensus between competing interests and site constraints. The design included several novel approaches to manage design complexities. The Town and design team worked with state and federal resource agencies to develop innovative procedures to estimate critical river flows and analyze fish passage and stability criteria. The consultant also worked with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the US Fish and Wildlife Service to use a new, unpublished survivorship model to estimate fish

passage success rates and iteratively refine the proposed design. The team also worked closely with the owner of the former mill, now residential condominiums, to upgrade their air conditioning system to a closed system to eliminate the need to use river water for cooling; switching to the new system saved money and allowed for more flexibility during the river restoration. In April 2016, bids were received from prequalified bidders; the successful bidder was SumCo EcoContracting of Salem, Massachusetts. Construction began in earnest in July. The region experienced extreme drought conditions prior to and throughout the construction period. These conditions decreased the need for water management activities on the construction site and allowed a condensed construction schedule. Finally, after years of planning, the removal project was substantially complete in only ten weeks.

Collaboration and Successful Outcome

Because of the environmental benefits of dam removal, a number of partners contributed funds and technical expertise to the project, including NOAA, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) Aquatic Resource Mitigation Program, NHDES Coastal Program, NHDES Rivers & Lakes Management

and Protection Program, the NH State Conservation Committee, and the NH Fish and Game Department. Funding and technical support from these agencies helped to cover nearly half of the total project cost. A true success story, the Great Dam removal project has helped eliminate a public safety and financial liability— while restoring a total of 21 river miles to a free-flowing condition, including 8 miles on the main stem of the Exeter River and 13 miles of its freshwater tributaries, improving diadromous fish passage and water quality. Removal of the dam will reduce the depth and severity of flooding in the community—reducing the size of the 100-year floodplain in Exeter by an estimated 200 acres, which will prevent future impacts to citizens and public infrastructure. Ultimately, the dam removal has increased the community's resiliency by reducing the severity of future floods, and improved overall water quality for the Town and surrounding Exeter River area, while protecting critical water supplies.

The new lighting over a fire engine

LED lighting provides a night and day difference to Topeka’s Maintenance Shop David Bevens Community Education Manager Public Works Department City of Topeka, Kansas

T

he only thing brighter than the light beaming from 22 feet above Topeka’s Heavy Duty Equipment Maintenance Shop floor is the enthusiasm and gratitude of the guy who runs the place. With 30 fixtures shining more than 100 lumens at the shop floor level, Supervisor Mike Sloan is pretty happy. “This place glows,” said Sloan, supervisor at the four-person shop dedicated to repairing very large pieces of equipment, mainly fire engines. “It is literally a night and day difference.” Describing working conditions all too familiar to many do-it-yourself mechanics working under their cars outside at night, life wasn’t so bright before the new LED fixtures were installed in the fall of 2016. “When all of the florescent lights worked, it was still dark,” Sloan said, adding that the lumens coming from the then 36 florescent fixtures only registered 5 lumens at the shop floor level. “It was like working in a cave.” Insufficient light emittance from the fixtures wasn’t the only reason for low lighting. The original lighting grid placed fixtures directly above the equipment, thus the overhead lighting was obscured by the large equipment being serviced. This was especially noticeable when the cabs of fire trucks were raised to allow access to the engines. Mechanics relied heavily on trouble lights and flashlights to improve lighting conditions at their work stations. It was also noticeable how the large overhead doors affected illumination when they were rolled up. A photometric analysis to show foot-candle and a layout for the new lighting was produced by a local company, Enlighten™ by Century, the LED division of Century Business Technologies. The new grid design places lights over the walking paths between pieces of equipment and out of the way of overhead doors as much as possible. “There is now more light broadcasted beneath the vehicles than there was on top of them before,” Sloan said. continued on page 30

The original lighting

Supervisor Mike Sloan stands with one of the City’s fire engines with the new LED lighting overhead.

TFMComm, Inc., a Topeka-based wireless communication and Enlighten™ distributor, was hired to provide the system and write the manufacturing specifications. Scott Rowland, TFMComm Vice President, explained they requested from the manufacturer more LEDs on the board than most off-the-shelf units and requested a heavier LED driver, which converts 120V power to low-voltage DC power.

at the Heavy Duty Shop. They also installed exterior lighting at that shop and two other shops, one dedicated to smaller vehicles and the other to large pieces of equipment, such as dump trucks and street sweepers.

“We wanted to get to an exceptional color and brightness without pushing the drivers as hard,” he said. “We honestly believe it’s one of the best fixtures out there,” he said. The fixtures have a seven-year unlimited hour warranty and can be serviced—a unique feature, Rowland said. TFMComm also designed a retrofit for the remaining incandescent fixtures located in the parts corral and large vehicle storage bay at the Heavy Duty Shop. A plastic tube the size of a regular florescent bulb filled with LED lights and a small driver replaced the ballasts and florescent bulbs. The cost of powering the new LED’s is a lot less plus the retrofit saved the City the cost of rewiring for the new fixtures. The City will also save money over time by not having to replace florescent bulbs and ballasts.

The total cost for fixtures and installations at the Heavy Equipment Garage was $10,612. Exterior security lighting at all three shops cost $6,055.51. The cost of electricity to power the new fixtures is $223 per month vs. $427 per month spent to power the old ones, a savings of $204 per month or $24,480 over 10 years, Rowland said. Brian Bigenwalt, Fleet Division Director, said the project has been a win-win for mechanics and taxpayers alike—twenty times brighter for about half the cost for electricity. Sloan said the conversation to improve lighting was well underway when he arrived nine years earlier. Budget constraints prevented significant upgrades. Remedial steps to remedy the issue, such as painting the lower portion of the walls white to improve reflectivity, did not bring about significant change. While discussions continued on and off for years, lighting technology was moving at light speed. Eventually the discussion turned to LED lighting. Bigenwalt said he and Buildings and General Services Division Director, Vince Schuetz, talked to several vendors about new lighting options. Once they chose TFMComm, “the project took off from there,” he said. Once the lights were purchased, the lights were installed in five days while vehicle repair work continued below. “I know the HD Shop project was a long time coming but the wait was worth it,” Bigenwalt said. “Safety concerns due to not being able to see well were mitigated and it came in under budget—that was a plus.” Bigenwalt said the City’s other two shops will be upgraded in 2018 if all goes well budget-wise. For those working in the shop every day, Sloan has seen a big boost in morale, something he contributes to the City’s leaders and top administration being attentive to employee needs. “It was like getting a Christmas present,” he said.

Ace Electric, another local company, was hired to acquire and install lighting 30

White Privilege? Where’s mine!?!? Justin Miller Assistant Engineering Services Supervisor City of Durham, North Carolina Member, APWA Diversity Committee

E

in my environment and never felt like I didn’t belong. No one (that I’m aware of) has ever assumed that I am not intelligent or trustworthy. I have never (again, that I’m aware of) been followed around a store. I can be in an affluent neighborhood without people wondering what I’m doing there. When I walk into a dealership, I fully expect to be waited on and the salesperson does not appear to wonder whether I can afford the car or qualify for the loan. And if any of these things did not go “as they should,” I would justly feel offended and wronged. That feeling of entitlement—that is White Privilege.

ver been in any training or conversation and felt that defensive wall go up as soon as you heard the words “White Privilege”? Being a white male, I have. For several years my thoughts were probably like many others have had: “Not a darn thing has been handed to me” and “I’ve worked hard to get where I am!”

I grew up in the middle of nowhere USA, aka Buhler, Kansas, in a lower middle class family. We had what we needed but nothing in the way of “extras.” For my brothers and me, entertainment consisted mostly of whatever games/activities our imaginations produced. Almost all of my clothes were hand-me-downs from people in our church. My parents were divorced by the time I was fourteen, largely in part to financial stresses, which led to some hard teenage years. I moved to North Carolina shortly after I graduated from high school, and in 1991 I was hired by local government at $6.36/hour as a laborer. I began soaking up all of the training I could and worked hard to advance. So where, in my childhood and in my working adult life, was all of this privilege I keep hearing about? A few years ago, I began doing research to figure it out because, frankly, I was tired of hearing about it. What I found was that I was confusing “White Privilege” with “Class Privilege,” and that I had no real grasp on what White Privilege was.

Kristin Howerton, writer/blogger, explains: “At its essence, it’s a simple concept: white privilege refers to the both minor and significant advantages that white people hold in American society.” That means things are set to favor me in general; not that anything will necessarily be outright handed to me or guaranteed. In general, however trivial the experience seems, my experiences will most likely be more positive and work out more in my favor than the experience a person of color has in the same situation. This can be difficult to wrap one’s head around. Sometimes I get frustrated with my kids for not appreciating what they have, because I know what it’s like not to have those things. However, because they have never experienced that lack, they therefore do not connect with my perspective. I think that until I looked harder, I could not begin to see the benefits of my whiteness in much the same way.

In 1991 the construction business was different than it is today. Private outfits couldn’t compete with the benefits that local government offered. When I applied for the laborer position, there were about forty applicants for about eight laborer positions. Of those applicants, all but two were African-American. I was a 20-year-old kid that hardly knew the difference between asphalt and concrete, and had virtually no experience in construction. What are the chances that there were AfricanAmerican applicants who had more experience than me, but were not hired because the man that hired me felt more comfortable with me because I looked like him and spoke like him?

My whiteness has been my gauge for everything that was “normal,” while assuming that all others perceive daily living the same as I do. Although my family had no “class privilege,” I grew up around people that (for the most part) looked like me. I was taught my race’s history without having to take it as an elective. I have always felt safe

I have the luxury to remain neutral and not acknowledge having any advantages as an able-bodied continued on page 32

As I read different works by Jennifer Holladay, Allan Johnson, Gina Crosley-Corcoran, Chris Tognotti, Tim Wise, and others I noted repeating points. White (or Racial) Privilege “isn’t about YOU” as an individual. It’s not about me not being a racist person. It’s not about trying to make me feel guilty or ashamed. It doesn’t mean I haven’t struggled, or that my accomplishments should be discounted.

cisgender heterosexual white male. I could say that I’m “color blind” and dismiss the notion of inequities. I could do these things and everything would be just fine. That is White Privilege. So what can one do? I don’t claim to be an expert on “White Privilege” but here are a few suggestions: •

A good first step is researching the issue and recognizing one’s own privilege(s). Having privilege is not something to feel ashamed of; I am no more responsible for being born white than I am for being born male. Have constructive conversations with other people of privilege about race, assumed biases and discuss ways of leveling the playing field. Take a look at your organization—are there inequities in the hierarchy? What steps can be taken to make the organization more diverse and inclusive? Introduce developmental assignments, be a mentor, and start an outreach program to high school students targeting underprivileged areas. Create an environment you would want to work in no matter what your gender, race, etc. Promote discussions of race. Talk about privilege, race issues, racial biases, and other societal assumptions regarding certain “groups.” Some of these conversations may seem uncomfortable but these issues do need to be talked about and can assist our organizations/communities in becoming truly inclusive. Listen. Don’t try to interject a perspective because you haven’t personally seen what is being described. I can hear and empathize with someone about the issue APWA BMP halfPage_Feb 17.pdf 1 1/11/17 12:29 PM they are describing but I cannot truly comprehend what it is like to be a person of color in any given situation.

These are just a few suggestions and if you look, I’m certain you’ll find other opportunities to be an ally to those that don’t share your privilege. Don’t worry about getting everything perfect because you probably won’t. “SURJ” (Showing Up for Racial Justice) renamed itself a few times because they realized they were excluding certain groups (i.e., “Standing Up for Racial Justice” excluded those with disabilities who could not physically stand). Just keep trying.

I

n my brief, but exciting time as a member of APWA Government Affairs, there has been one consistent and steady theme: the importance that advocacy plays in assisting our members to meet their goals. Our Government Affairs team is ready and determined to advocate on your behalf with Members of Congress, their staffs and officials within various federal agencies, to share your stories and tell them the important roles you have within your communities. However, even more powerful is your voice, the voice of our public works professionals and the role you play in advocacy. I wanted to bring attention to one of these options, the Emergency Services Sector, or ESS, which is run through the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Office of Infrastructure Protection. The ESS provides a vehicle to carry the message we want to share. Emphasized in the mission statement, the goal of the ESS is to save lives, protect property and the environment, assist communities impacted by disasters, and aid recovery during emergencies. That statement

The importance of your voice in advocacy: Emergency Services Sector participation vividly illustrates what drives the dedicated women and men serving as emergency management professionals. I realize that the ESS may not be as widely known as many other coalitions; therefore I wanted to share some additional background information. The ESS is one of the 16 critical infrastructure sectors identified in the National Infrastructure Protection Plan of 2013: Partnering for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience (NIPP 2013). The ESS is comprised of highly skilled professionals whose responsibilities range from cyber security awareness to the day-to-day safety of their communities. Additionally, DHS offers a wide array of free resources, including the Cybersecurity Initiative and the Information Sharing Initiative, and training opportunities to government and private sector partners to advance the ESS stated mission. The ESS includes geographically distributed facilities and equipment in both paid and volunteer capacities organized primarily at the federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial levels of government, such as municipal public works departments, city police departments and fire stations, county sheriff’s offices, and the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security. This past December I was able to participate in the joint Services Specific Agency (SSA) conference on behalf of APWA. The conference brought together delegates from the ESS along with representatives from several of the other SSAs. I was truly intrigued by all of the information and knowledge shared by emergency management professionals. What interested me most was not just the level of detail provided during the topic discussions, but the ability to find solutions while considering a multitude of possible emergency incident scenarios. As I was listening to the discussions, it was clear to me that we need our nationally- and locally-elected leaders to receive timely updates of the circumstances faced by these professionals allowing them to better understand the key role of emergency management and how split-second, and in many cases, life-saving decisions are made.

In addition, municipal borrowers sometimes issue bonds on behalf of private entities such as non-profit colleges or hospitals. These “conduit” borrowers typically agree to repay the issuer, who pays the interest and principal on the bonds.

This is not unlike the subterranean pressures that seem important to formation of diamonds. When the pressure is slowly relaxed, the carbon atoms have rearranged themselves into the diamond-like strand, surrounded by a cloud or halo of hydrogen atoms. Other researchers working to understand the properties of these diamond nanothreads and how to produce them in large quantities have discovered that the hydrogen atoms may play an important role in making the material even more extraordinary and useful.

OPEN YOUR WINTER TOOLBOX

Thinking about performance measures

T

here is an old saying that “if you do not measure it, you cannot manage it.” This makes a lot of sense to most of us, and in general we would find ourselves in good agreement about it, but like many such sayings, the devil is very much in the details. This is true when it comes to measuring how well we have done our winter maintenance. The first issue with measuring performance in winter maintenance is what you should be measuring. Clearly, if we have set levels of service, then a key measure is whether or not we achieved those levels of service. We can add several riders to that. Did we achieve our level of service in a timely manner, or did it take us too long to get to bare pavement (if that is our level of service goal)? Sometimes, levels of service include time ranges—for example, Minnesota Department of Transportation says they will achieve bare wheeltracks between one and three hours after the end of a storm, on their highest priority roads. They then have a clear measure of performance— if it took them four hours, it took too long. But what if it only took them one hour? Would that mean they have failed in achieving their level of service? And of course, Mother Nature wants to put her two cents into the equation. Recovering from an ice storm that dropped an inch of ice on everything in three hours would be nearly miraculous! So in addition to timeliness, we also have to consider the storm severity when we are trying to measure performance. To further complicate matters, we have to consider for whom we are measuring performance. If this is intended to shed light on our own operations, then we will use different tools than if we are trying to measure how well we have served our customers. A number of agencies use customer surveys to determine how well the traveling public views the job that the agency is doing in winter maintenance. These surveys are certainly of value when it comes to talking about performance of the agency at a high level, but they will not shed much light into the details of winter maintenance operations and how those could be improved. Customer surveys also tend to be given on an annual basis, or sometimes even less frequently, so they are not well suited to the process of optimizing 42

operations, although they can certainly provide very pointed guidance if an agency is way off track! In terms of optimizing the performance of your agency’s operations, however, you will need to get further into the guts of those operations than customer surveys will take you. The sort of questions you can address by tracking your performance include things like: are we using our materials as effectively as possible? Are the routes we use the most efficient deployment of our trucks and personnel? These (and many more) are all the sort of questions behind the “measure it, manage it” mantra. Each agency at any given time will have different questions to ask to optimize their performance, but the process of formulating and asking the questions follow a common thread which is worth exploring. One way of thinking about the sort of questions to ask is by breaking things down into three categories: inputs, outputs, and outcomes. Inputs are things that your operations are faced with. This would include the number of lane miles you have to manage, and the priorities (and associated levels of service) for those lane miles. It might include the number of trucks you have, and the equipment you have on them. Do they have wing plows, for example, or just front plows? Can they spread materials at all, and if so, how well is the spreading controlled? Can they pre-wet materials they apply, and if so at what rate? How many vehicles do you have that can apply straight liquids, perhaps in a pre-treatment or anti-icing mode? The inputs would also include the number of personnel you have available and how long they are available to work. Do you provide 24-hour service, or only between 4:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m., for example? How long can your operators work before you have to give them a break? What policies are in place to limit work hours? There is a whole bunch of stuff that can be considered to be in the category of inputs, and most of it does not change very much from day to day (although it likely will from year to year). However, one important input is very changeable, and that is the severity (and type) of the winter event that you are having to address. The worse the storm is (and worse is not necessarily easy to define) the more effort will be required to achieve your levels of service. The whole issue of storm severity is rather complex, and we will revisit it in a later column, but for now, we can simply say it


is an input we need to consider if we are trying to measure winter maintenance performance. Outputs are what you do—how much material you applied on which segment of road; how many miles you plowed in total during the storm. They are the actions you took to address the winter event, in the context of your agency’s responsibilities and desired levels of service. In and of themselves they are not strictly measures of performance, since they say nothing about how effective your actions were. However, they are very important for measuring the efficiency with which you operate. If you applied three times as much salt for one storm as for another, there had better be good reasons for it! Some of those might be changes in pavement temperature (colder means more salt, as long as the pavement is above 15º Fahrenheit) or in precipitation type (freezing rain needs more salt than snow, typically), so just because you used more salt in a particular situation than in another it is not necessarily a negative indicator, but you do need to know why.

(a dry road is about 0.8) within four hours after the end of a storm. This is a nicely objective standard, but the challenge is getting it measured. A variety of systems exist that can measure road friction, from a simple deceleration device (drive down the road and then slam on the brakes—a sensor will tell you how much friction there is—if you end up in the ditch, there was not enough…) to sophisticated trailers that can be towed behind vehicles. There are even some remote sensing devices that look at the road surface using a variety of wavelengths of light, and by analysis can derive the friction of the road surface without ever touching it. The great thing about friction, or grip as it is sometimes known, is that it provides an objective, repeatable measure of the condition of the road surface. The challenge is that not every agency may have the budget to use this in multiple locations on a road network, although the cost of some of the sensors is decreasing over time. So, measuring performance in winter maintenance is rather tricky, and even when you have all the data there is still the issue of what to do with it. And, as indicated above, we have not got into the whole issue of how bad the storm was, but we will!

There is quite a lot of information that can be gathered from some inputs that can be very useful and may not be quite what you expect. For example, if you track miles per gallon for your trucks through every storm, you may be Wilfrid Nixon can be reached at (239) 231-3305 or able to determine which types of storm give you harder snow to plow—is it a light fluffy snow that wilf@saltinstitute.org. is the problem or a wet heavy snow? Odds Pub Name: PARKS N REC 4.75 x 4.75 are you work harder to plow the wet heavy snow, but it would be good to know how much harder (at least from the point of view of your miles per gallon!). The final category to track is outcomes, and these are where the rubber really meets the road. These are the things that measure how well you conducted your operations. For many agencies, the level of service goal is some type of bare pavement condition. Measuring this can be a little bit tricky, especially since the measurements will tend to be done “by eye” and so are subject to interpretation. If that sounds like what your agency does, then you might want to consider getting some photos that show what you do and do not mean by bare pavement, and making sure that your operators, or whomever is responsible for tracking the achievement of the bare pavement goal, know what is meant by bare pavement and can apply that standard consistently. In Scandinavia they have for a number of years used friction as a measure of their level of service goal. This typically means that, for example, their highest priority roads have to achieve friction levels of at least 0.4

HOW DID THEY DO THAT?

Surfing in Colorado… Really? Laura Kroeger, P.E. Assistant Manager, Design, Construction, and Maintenance Urban Drainage & Flood Control District, Denver, Colorado Member, APWA Leadership & Management Committee

W

hen first posed with the idea to incorporate a standing surf wave into a river improvement project in Colorado, I was taken aback. River surfing in Colorado? Truth be told, I didn’t even know river surfing was a “thing.” Then, after asking a few questions, I quickly saw the potential and became excited about being a part of bringing this up-and-coming sport to the Denver area. Has anyone else experienced this type of great idea moment? Most of us get really excited about an innovative, creative opportunity and the possibilities of what it could become. Then, once you start discussing your thoughts with peers, the challenges of tackling an “out-of-the box design” come to light and a heavy dose of reality sets in. The barrage of questions and the unknowns soon start to kill the buzz. Questions regarding managing safety concerns, long-term maintenance, city council approval, permitting, funding—the list goes on, but you get the idea—can take their toll. Unfortunately, many great ideas end up in the innovation graveyard once they come to this crossroad. It’s not that this line of questioning is wrong; in fact, it’s quite necessary. However, these questions need to be asked at the right time in order to keep the innovation process from stalling out. Over the years, the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District has been sold on many exciting and innovative approaches pitched by creative design teams. It’s typical that the idea wins the job, then we all aid in putting it to a slow and disappointing death. Fortunately, we can learn from our missteps. The common themes of why innovative ideas were not realized are summed up in the following three observations: 44

APWA Reporter

• • •

Lack of commitment and clarity of the vision. Not having the right team of experts at the right time to be effective. Not managing expectations of stakeholders, specifically related to risk.

By identifying what the stumbling blocks were on previous projects we were able to develop a strategic project guidance plan that is referred to as V2P. The implementation of this plan successfully enabled the River Run improvement project to incorporate an innovative idea to create a standing wave in the lowflow water conditions of the South Platte River. What does V2P mean? Innovation through a clear and engaging Vision, a driving Passion to break down barriers, and the creation of strong Partnerships. These three elements enable innovative concepts to be realized by providing the mechanism to Manage Risks associated with doing something new and the continued need to Sell the Vision to a broad audience to sustain support. The approach is not linear; rather, all three elements are used simultaneously. V2P are intertwined and when they complement each other they build the consistency, confidence and trust required to accomplish innovative goals. Vision – Clear, visual and simply messaged visions provide the guiding inspiration to the innovation process. Embracing something new is difficult in general, especially if you don’t have a good sense of what it is or does. Vision can create the confidence to let go of the old or the status quo, and move on to something better. The more visual the message the easier it will be to communicate, especially with a wide audience.


For the River Run project a computer-generated model of the proposed project was used to provide better imagery of the Vision of the improvements. The existing photo compared to the proposed made for an easy sales pitch. (See Figures 1 and 2 on p. 46) Early on, the project partners of River Run worked diligently to shape the message of a park and river improvements that would engage a wide range of users. The messaging continued to be fine-tuned throughout the project based on feedback and responses from elected officials and the public. The time spent Selling the Vision was valuable in that it not only promoted the project goals, but it also provided an opportunity to gain valuable feedback which further supported the innovative process. (See Figure 3 on p. 47) The concept stage imagery of the Vision for the River Run improvement project didn’t specifically advertise river surfing. Even though the design team had the idea in hand, we used the Selling the Vision process to slowly introduce the concept and gain support before making it a focal point of the project. The vision to “Create a Unique Regional Park Experience that Celebrates the River” never changed but simply grew to include river surfing. It’s worth noting that the process of Selling the Vision can be just as enriching as the excitement experienced while first developing the innovative idea. This is largely due to the growth in energy that comes from expanding the vision to a larger group of people. Innovative projects can’t happen without the support gained from doing a good job at Selling the Vision, but much of the heavy lifting is in Managing the Risks. Once you have the initial buy-in to move ahead, the “project vision” can continue to be used to now inspire the project partners to deliver by properly Managing the Risks.

Passion

– Vision alone is not enough to get past all the No’s… We’ve never done it that way before… or the You can’t do that! It’s the driving passion of the project partners who want to see the vision realized that are able to clear the hurdles and gain the support at all levels. Ben Nielsen, the project manager with Merrick & Company and resident surfer, was confident that river surfing would take off based on his experience designing projects in other land-locked areas and also through his network of local Colorado water recreation users. His passion and conviction helped excite the sponsors to want to provide the community with this high-value recreational experience. Ben was able to Sell the Vision

and also rely on past project successes to Manage the Risks associated with creating a standing wave in low-water conditions. Standing adjustable waves have been built, but to the team’s knowledge not at low-water conditions of 150 cubic feet per second. The drive and passion to achieve something new led the design team to spend countless hours in the hydraulics laboratory at Colorado State University. The hydraulic obstacles of creating a standing wave in low-water conditions were proving to be significant, and on many occasions the design team could have closed shop and declared the approach too difficult to achieve. The team’s reluctance to not let go of the Vision and maintain a passion for success is what kept the project moving forward. (See Figures 4-7 on p. 47) Like most things, too much of a good thing can become a problem, so there needs to be some balance maintained with a driving passion. For example, passion can become counterproductive if it leads to having blinders on and not recognizing and/or giving credit to genuine concerns. Ultimately, this will erode confidence and trust between partners as well as stakeholders. Keep the driving passion focused on overcoming hurdles by first seeing them and then using partnerships to manage it.

Partnerships

– The vision and the passion are encompassed by partnerships. The trust, expertise and commitment a solid partnership provides is instrumental to success. Developing a core team as early as possible will aid in the development of the vision and will most likely consist of the individuals who exhibit the driving passion. As mentioned earlier, sharing new ideas too early and with the wrong audience can end up sending worthy ideas to the graveyard. Start with a few trusted individuals who will be curious, ask good questions, and be open to exploration. The purpose of this small group is threefold: • •

Perform initial vetting of the idea to gain a broader perspective. Outline a plan to grow the partnership by identifying individuals with expertise and influence to advance the vision and help manage the risks. Also consider including a non-technical member on the team, like an artist or educator. These types of individuals tend to ask challenging and insightful questions that can provide a fresh approach. Develop a sales pitch in a safe environment.

The purpose of the partnerships is selling the vision and managing risks which is why a diverse team of experts continued on page 46 www.apwa.net

along with people of influence are needed. The River Run core partners started with the traditional design team, but added the contractor as well. Having Naranjo Civil Constructors on board during design was key to value engineering and risk management. For example, one of the identified risks for River Run was in the fabrication of the wave shaper. The traditional approach would have involved several different subcontractors working on the different components, which would open up the possibility of error in the final assembly. To mitigate this potential risk, the lead design consultant, Merrick & Company, contacted Obermeyer Hydro, a provider of hydropower and watercontrol equipment, whom they had worked with on larger projects in the past. Due to their past partnership and Obermeyer Hydro’s interest in the innovative vision, they agreed to take on this small job and build the wave shaper as a unit for the project. The River Run project partners grew to include elected officials, who were instrumental in keeping this project a funding priority through several election cycles. Another targeted partner was the local media. As public works agencies, we often avoid anything to do with being in the news. On the River Run project, we took a proactive approach to the media and promoted the amenities the project would provide as a means to reach the broader community. One final factor a partnership brings to the table is the mindset that “We’re all in this together.” This allows the partners the confidence to go out on a limb because they know they have the needed support behind them. A good

example of this was in the early stages of River Run when maintenance was first discussed—the idea of managing an adjustable wave on a daily basis was daunting. Who had the staff, the knowledge, or willingness to take on potential safety issues associated with a standing wave? Finally, one of the project partners stepped up and volunteered to do the daily physical adjustments needed to respond to variable flow conditions. Shortly after, another partner pledged funds for future operational costs, then another for post-project vegetation maintenance and so on. It was as if a contagious cooperative spirit had taken over the group and had created a culture to work together to make the vision a reality.

Summary V2P is an approach which identifies the key elements to perform in order to overcome the risks associated with innovation and to continually sell the vision to a broad audience in order to gain and sustain the required support to successfully implement an innovative or nontraditional project. The River Run project incorporated the exciting idea of bringing river surfing to the Denver area by creating a standing wave in the South Platte River that functioned during summer low-water conditions. The success of the project is attributed to the Vision to “Create a Unique Regional Park Experience that Celebrates the River,” driving Passion and Partnerships which together provided the consistency, confidence and trust to move beyond the ordinary to something extraordinary.

uring the summer of 2016, the rains came especially hard in the rural village of La Criba, El Salvador. Portions of roads looked like small rivers and the effects of soil erosion could be seen everywhere. Elders in the community marveled that this rainy season was heavier than any seen before but no one anticipated the rains would damage the pride of the village, a newly built community water system. La Criba is located near “Volcán Chingo,” a volcano marking the border between El Salvador and Guatemala, with a population around 950. Most families rely on agriculture—primarily corn and beans—for income, with some commuting to jobs near the cities of Santa Ana and San Salvador. Beginning in the 1960s a water system was constructed, followed by electricity in the 1990s. In 2001, an earthquake reduced the discharge from a spring used as a water source, limiting service to a portion of the day. Seasonal flow variations in another source—a stream—resulted in shortages that forced the community to rely on untreated surface waters, often used for washing, as drinking water. This required burdensome time spent hauling water while poor water quality contributed to gastrointestinal illnesses and other health risks amongst residents. Beginning in 2008, nearby Peace Corps volunteers engaged La Criba’s Board of Directors, elected through the local Asociación de Desarrollo Social Comunitario (ADESCO), www.apwa.net

which translates to “Association for Social and Community Development.” The Peace Corps worked to connect the ADESCO with the student chapter of Engineers Without Borders at Colorado State University (EWB-CSU) to support a new water system project. EWB-CSU, comprised of engineering students and professional mentors, began assisting the ADESCO in evaluating water supply options and eventually funded a groundwater well in 2011. Over the next few years, EWB-CSU also installed a pump, implemented an electrical control system donated by Golder Associates, and supported the construction of a transmission main. Meanwhile, in 2015 the ADESCO facilitated additional funding and support from the Japanese Embassy to El Salvador for a new water storage tank. The nearby municipality of Candelaria de la Frontera provided support for a new distribution system and the agreement required ADESCO to manage volunteer labor from each household to support construction. While the ADESCO of La Criba is adept at community organization and coordinating aid, a water system presents a unique set of multi-disciplinary challenges. With the ADESCO preparing to assume operation and maintenance duties prior to the system’s startup, EWBCSU’s role began to evolve. After addressing the technical aspects of providing drinking water, the students undertook a new challenge: what comes after construction?

In January 2016, a team travelled to La Criba to finalize the pump installation and install electrical controls. Peter Field, an EWB-CSU project lead, used his previous experience as an electrician to contribute to the success of the trip but quickly realized there was more to do.

larger process within international projects. “Our job isn’t to come in and solve one technical problem,” Neymark said. “Solving that problem might seem simple but it’s most likely going to be accompanied by other, unexpected problems. Addressing these unforeseen challenges is the difference between a sustainable project and just going in and building something.”

“We were sitting at the table after dinner and one of the community leaders asked us, ‘How do we charge people for the water?’ We looked at each other like, ‘Oh, we didn’t think about that!’ but right away we started talking about ideas,” Field recalls.

Currently, EWB-CSU is evaluating alternatives for a new chlorination system, as the current system lacks the required functionality, and is seeking funding to construct stormwater controls in order to protect the distribution system. The rains in 2016 washed away much of the backfill over the pipes, exposing them to potential damage. Non-technical factors influence each endeavor, with local supplies dictating the feasibility of potential chlorine systems and the community’s “ability to pay” necessitating outside funding for the stormwater controls.

To Field, this was a shift in focus. “When I first joined EWB, we needed a distribution system. We were focused on designing that, not financial sustainability,” he noted. In August 2016, another team returned and assisted the ADESCO in developing a budget and rate structure for the water system. The ADESCO had concerns about the magnitude of the budget but ultimately accepted EWB-CSU’s recommendations. However, a follow-up trip in January 2017 revealed difficulties in implementing the rates. The ADESCO’s leadership changed and, due to pressure within the community, the new Board of Directors reduced the operating budget and rates by roughly twothirds.

The financial framework remains a work in progress. During the recent trip, time was spent educating the new ADESCO leadership on operation and maintenance issues and the importance of financial sustainability. Neymark believes that through the evolution of the project, EWBCSU’s role has remained clear. There is a need to integrate both local and international stakeholders to provide resources and supplies to address the chlorine and

stormwater systems. The financial framework is the type of issue EWB needs to have a long-term commitment to, since the process of educating the community about the true cost of water service will take time. The fact that students have embraced these issues, and the various nontechnical factors they entail, sheds light on the type of post-construction assistance that rural communities often need and provides an example of the type of dedication needed from a project partner like EWB-CSU in order to encourage project sustainability.

“For a project to be sustainable, we can’t just do things like fundraise,” Neymark said. “We need to work hard to encourage other project partners to stay involved. We can’t be there all the time. But at the same time we need to be committed to help with the sort of unexpected challenges that are going to arise.”

making the trail a little over a mile long, and extended through the heart of downtown. Because of the number of properties involved, the overall plan consisted of 23 phases. Once the bulkheads were constructed, the next major improvement came in the 1990s with relocation of the public library from residential area to a new building in the heart of the downtown. Three dilapidated buildings were razed to make way for the new library and the library was constructed with the “front door” facing the Riverwalk.

Attention to the river also spurred businesses to locate in the downtown. A community theater as well as several art shops are now located in the core of the downtown, along with coffee shops, gift shops, and other mercantile business. In short, the river, once a place no one wanted to be at, had become an attraction. Annual festivals as well as weekly farmer’s markets use the Riverwalk. It has become an attraction for ecotourism, as kayakers can launch in downtown, and traverse the river to the Delaware Bay at Slaughter Beach. Recreational fishing, biking, hiking, and boating are now part of the river and riverbank life. Once an eyesore, the river ended up saving the downtown.

Each of the other phases was constructed over a 40-year time span, with the final phase being the purchase of Goat Island in 2014. Goat Island has been transformed into a nature park with hiking trails with an education pavilion presently

While much of the plan for the Riverwalk has been completed, challenges remain. Climate change and sea level rise will need to be addressed. Pressure for development will need to be well thought out and planned for. Rainwater runoff and runoff water quality will need to be addressed. All challenges for future public works and other City officials, in order to continue to maintain a healthy thriving river and downtown.

any public works professionals are charged with the care and maintenance of their athletic fields used for multiple purposes and various age groups. Municipalities are often faced with fields that are in need of major renovations or replacement. Some of the factors that drive these renovations or replacements include: •

• • •

Improper Maintenance – The surface needs consistent and appropriate maintenance or it will deteriorate and fail over time. Overuse – Without proper scheduling an overused new surface will fail. Poor Design – A field surface needs to be built on a proper subgrade or it will continue to fail. Poor Construction – Without proper specifications and a good contractor the field surface will eventually fail.

These factors hold true for new construction or renovation and for a natural grass surface or a synthetic turf surface. One of the first questions field managers ask when renovating or replacing athletic fields is what type of surface the field should be. The two major types of outdoor athletic field surfaces are natural grass and synthetic turf. There are newer surfaces that combine both natural and synthetic elements; however, the focus for this article will be on decisions relating to natural grass and synthetic turf systems. Natural grass systems include native soil fields, sand-based fields, and seed or sod. Synthetic turf systems include all rubber infill or sand/rubber infill. 56

As a field manager, there are many things to consider when making this decision. Some key items to consider are: • • • • •

Budget Type/Intensity of use Environmental Impact Maintenance Future Replacement

Having an accurate cost estimate is critical to help define your project. Go to other communities, see what systems are in place, and ask questions of other field managers on playability and maintenance. Don’t be afraid to take advantage of their experience and expertise. A key step in the process is to hire an architect who is experienced in athletic field design and construction to assist you with the design, cost estimates, presentations and Football field


construction. They should be skilled at presenting in a public forum. The architect can help you decide on the type of system that will fit your field and can outline both benefits and detriments of each type. It is important throughout the design process and onward that you work with your stakeholder groups such as the Recreation Department, youth leagues, school athletic department and other groups as needed. This will help determine the type, duration and intensity of uses to the field. Field surfaces need to be able to withstand their intended use and be available for play or events when needed. A native soil-natural grass field may not hold up to 24/7 use, so the design may need to shift to a sand-based natural grass field or to a synthetic field surface. For many communities, budget can be a limiting factor and the sole driver of what type of surface to place on your fields. If this is the case, consider not only the installation cost, but the future maintenance and replacement cost as well. Environmental impacts, whether real or perceived, are very important as more and more people are aware of their surroundings. Designs need to take into account stormwater management, nutrient management and water use. All types of field surfaces need to drain properly and reduce potential environmental impacts to user groups and the adjacent area. One of the things that can have a major impact on the success of a project is the maintenance program. Both natural grass and synthetic field surfaces require maintenance. Natural grass fields require fertilization, irrigation, overseeding/ sod repairs, aeration and mowing. They may also require grading and topdressing. Synthetic fields require levelling, grooming, and debris removal and may require water access in some instances. Funding and resources should be secured for proper maintenance before you renovate or install a new surface. Future budgets should include replacement or new installs to ensure safety and playability.

estimates which enable us to gain approval from committees, Board of Selectmen and eventually, Town Meeting. In 2003 Lexington decided to renovate Lincoln Park. The park was built on an old landfill and the fields were difficult to maintain due to debris, drainage issues and overuse. We were spending time and money with little impact. The athletic fields onsite consisted of three full-size soccer fields, a baseball field and a softball field which were all natural grass fields on native soils. As we moved through the process of hiring an architect, meeting with stakeholders, designing the project and assessing the Public Works Department capabilities it became clear that we could not sustain natural grass fields at an acceptable level. Factors that contributed to our decision were increased use by adding the new lacrosse programs to this field area and moving field hockey from another area to this field. We also had not built our maintenance budget to accommodate the cultural practices needed to maintain high-quality fields. The Town combined funds from the Recreation Enterprise Account and the tax levy to support the renovation of Lincoln Park with three full-size synthetic turf fields. We kept the baseball and softball fields as natural grass. This allowed us to move some resources to other fields to improve their overall maintenance and playability. The overall project was around $3,000,000 to construct and included parking, a playground and other site amenities. Over the past three years each synthetic field was replaced at a cost of about $600,000 each. At the high school football field a decision was made in 2012 to reconstruct the field due to grading and drainage issues. We again hired an architect, met with stakeholders and assessed our capabilities to come up with a design. Though some in the community wanted synthetic turf fields we were confident that we could build and maintain a high-quality natural grass field. By this time our budget had grown and we had the resources in place to make it happen. The field was reconstructed with grading, new soil and drainage improvements and it is something the community is proud of. The project was around $650,000 to construct and included some site amenities. At the end of the day our bottom line is to provide wellmaintained, safe and playable fields for all users.

Gary L. Rank Facilities Manager City of West Des Moines, Iowa Member, APWA Facilities & Grounds Committee

T

he world of facility management in the public sector is constantly changing, at least in the City of West Des Moines, Iowa. As a Facilities Manager, I am required to wear many hats to accomplish the goals that have been set by those above my decision-making level, the elected body, the citizens I serve and last but not least—myself. In the recent past, my “world” required caring for and maintaining over twenty public buildings. This all changed late last fall, when I was tasked with the responsibility of also maintaining our Parks and Recreation Department’s facilities. These facilities consist of two swimming pools, two ballfield complexes and over twenty parks that contain everything from picnic shelters, restrooms, an archery range, a spray-ground, dog park, etc. With the addition of the above duties, I also had to restructure my staff and my own approach with regards to how maintenance of facilities is managed. How did we get to where we are at? It started with the fact that the Public Works Department needed more staff to fill seats in snowplows. The Parks Department happened to possess the CDL-qualified staff to help fill those seats. An effort was made to collaborate with our Parks Department, as we both provide snow functions for the City in different capacities. Both departments also perform similar services such as mowing, tree trimming and, to some degree, facilities maintenance. The common theme was obvious. This was an attempt to utilize what we possessed with available staff members to be more efficient and not duplicate the work effort. One example of why

Evolution: How to hit a facility curve ball when you are up to bat this merger was mutually beneficial would be that the snow on our parks trail system was oftentimes getting plowed even before the street network was cleared. We found that this was counter-productive (i.e., creating snow windrows that would block cross walks) to the overall “City” goals, priorities and expectations of our citizenry. City leaders tasked us with coming up with a plan to become more collaborative and efficient with regards to meeting the goals of the City-wide expectations. A number of meetings were held between the two departments, in efforts to combine forces. This was met with some resistance, not only from some managers of both departments, but the employee base as well. After a few “incidents” that highlighted some of the areas of concern, it was decided by the City Manager that Parks Maintenance and Public Works would combine to become “Public Services” thereby removing the barriers that created inefficiencies in service. This has not been without its challenges. The first was trying to understand the tasks and how they were completed before the merger. The second, after the merger, was placing the right staff members in the right place to complete the work, using a blended approach from both departments. As this is a facilities-related article, how did this affect our organization as it relates to facilities? To get started with, I now have a member of the former Parks Maintenance staff in the work group I manage. I am gaining a new insight on how parks maintenance was being performed and how repairs were conducted. This continued on page 60 www.apwa.net

was based on a different organizational approach than I was accustomed to. I have hard dates on most of the repairs as they relate to facilities. The Parks Department relied more upon a soft date startup which was dependent upon the weather in respect to openings, closings and operational hours. Much of the maintenance we have to perform also has to coincide with rentals, tournaments, and any number of events, which can complicate the work. The time between fall shutdown and spring startup, for a majority of the parks system facilities, leaves a very small window for any kind of significant repairs to be performed. Many aspects of these repairs are also very weather dependent. As we approach the spring startup, the repair list seems to grow on a daily basis. Since I did not possess an aquatics or recreation background this made the “transition” a bit more complicated, but as with any task, the basics of formulating a plan, troubleshooting and performing preventive maintenance repairs are vital for success. As our organization moves forward with the planning for the upcoming year, we have had to make decisions that have impacted the frontline staff. These decisions have ranged from moving staff away from their normal work sites and familiar routines to different areas and work responsibilities in an effort to achieve the established goals. Like most changes, this has not been without its challenges and has created some “anxiety” between staff members. As a whole, the Department has been analyzed and reorganized from the ground up. This change has been difficult for some to accept and has affected the morale of the Department to a certain degree. There still is an undercurrent of “yours vs. mine vs. ours.” However, I feel that in a few months, after our busy spring season is underway and everyone’s mind moves toward the tasks at hand, we will become a more cohesive group as we work together to accomplish our goals. I believe that cross training my workforce will be the first and most important step toward reaching our goals. I am in the process of having my various staff members train together so I can analyze the staffing needs and assign the “right people to the right tasks.” Under the former system in the Parks Department, the role of repair and service was left to a very specific 60

group. There had not been a lot of emphasis placed on cross training so there was not much experience in the area of how to backfill a position when someone was absent. The City currently has only two CPOs (Certified Pool Operators). One of the CPOs is the pool manager, and the other is currently an operations supervisor in Public Services. The pool manager was carrying the bulk of this workload. In order to augment the position with backfill of certified facilities staff substitutes, I will be sending certain key staff members to obtain a CPO license. The majority of the parks system facilities is scheduled to open within the first few weeks of April. The season continues through the first weeks of November. After the parks season ends is where I hopefully will see the reciprocal effects of the cross training effort. Parks staff personnel will become involved with basic building repair so that that position can be backfilled in the event a member of the facilities staff is absent or is not in a position to respond to needed repairs. This will hopefully make our work flow more timely and efficient. In the event an organization encounters this type of restructure, it would be prudent to plan out, to the smallest detail, how this will affect management, staff, and the work they are expected to complete. I would recommend visualizing the scope of the work to be completed, implementing a thorough and well-vetted plan that covers all tasks, assign responsibilities to the right staff and delegate effectively. From the outside looking in, everything appeared to be easy to manage and seamless. I have found, upon closer examination, that a number of the small details that had been left undecided, will likely play a significant role into the success of my Department as a whole. As with any major change, as we continue to move through this process, we encounter “learning experiences.” However, we have used these “opportunities” to further enhance the overall work plan and gain efficiencies to better serve our community. Once again it seems that communication and gaining input and buy-in from staff have been some of the keys to success. Gary Rank can be reached at (515) 222-3480 or gary.rank@ wdm.iowa.gov.


The value of interval meter data Kathy Miller Key Account Agent Fayetteville Public Works Commission Fayetteville, North Carolina

ost municipal building managers have the same problem when it comes to managing the electric usage of multiple municipal buildings, optimizing HVAC operation to reduce utility consumption and cost. While a quality building automation system certainly makes the task of utility conservation more manageable, it doesn’t always provide all the information a manager needs to understand how the daily electrical consumption affects the overall cost of electricity. Interval meter data is invaluable information which can help building managers understand their electrical usage patterns. This knowledge may provide opportunity to reduce utility consumption or shave peak demand; thereby, reducing the overall cost of electricity. Today, most utility companies employ advanced metering systems which allow for interval data measurement and remote communication. Interval meter data is a granular record of energy consumption, taken at predefined increments throughout the day, every day. Typically, interval meter data comes in 15, 30 or 60 minute granularity. Such data is commonly referred to as “interval demand data,” “interval energy data” or “kW interval data.” This data is not routinely provided to the customer; however, most utility companies can now provide this upon request, at little to no cost.

The kilowatt (kW) demand represents the rate at which electricity is consumed—or the amount needed to power a facility at any given point in time. The kW demand charges are based on the highest interval usage during the billing cycle. This charge allows the utility company to cover the cost of generation and distribution to meet the maximum demand that all the customers may require at any one time. Separate charges for energy consumption (kWh) and demand (kW) more fairly distribute the costs of providing service to customers who use large amounts of energy. Depending on the utility rate schedule and the building’s operational hours, billing demand can represent as much as half of the overall cost of electricity. While a customer may not be able to change the amount of kWh needed to operate a facility, they may be able to reduce how much they need at any given moment—in other words, they may be able to spread the load and reduce the peak demand cost. This particular facility is typically an 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. operation, Monday through Friday. A quick glance at the winter-time load profile tells a building manager three

To understand the value of interval meter data, one must understand how kWh electrical usage and kW demand is recorded by the meter and how each of these readings is valued by your utility company in the form of the applicable rate schedule. The kilowatt hour (kWh) is the measure of total energy used over a billing period or cycle. When we speak of conservation and energy efficiency, we typically speak in terms of kWh saved.

things: (1) the building is probably heated with some type of electric heat; (2) the building’s HVAC system is brought on at approximately 6:00 a.m.; and (3) the load quickly stabilizes after the building warms up.

A simple change in the building’s control sequencing, the following year, reduced the monthly peak kW by staging on the building when the outside temperature fell below a certain threshold; thereby, allowing the building to prewarm in stages and stabilize. This load reduction equates to nearly a $2,000 electrical savings for one month. The peak day comparison is shown in the graph above. Interval meter data can provide useful and actionable information. Using this information in the form of a load profile enables the facility manager to map out strategies to reduce peak demand or usage and answer a variety of building-level questions, such as:

• •

Is there opportunity to begin staging cooling loads off earlier at the end of the day to reduce usage? Are there spikes in demand resulting from startup of HVAC equipment, particularly electric heat? • Is there a significant issue with motor in-rush at startup that can be corrected? • Are the building controls working as designed to schedule off HVAC equipment and lighting in the unoccupied hours? • Is there opportunity to install automatic sequencers on highenergy-use equipment to avoid simultaneous operation?

The load profile may also present opportunity to select an alternative electric rate. Utilities are increasingly offering multiple rate options to commercial and industrial customers, many of which afford lower pricing during specific hours of the day or incentivize demand reduction during monthly peak periods. Peakshaving generation, thermal energy storage, load shifting, and automated load curtailment are options that could be employed to lower the overall cost of energy. Interval meter data makes it possible to precisely quantify the dollar savings of the proposed project on each available option. Every facility has a unique energy use pattern. Analyzing the interval meter data is the best way to effectively minimize peak demand, evaluate usage and save money on your energy bills.

Here are the keys to the facilities, now what?

It’s a scenario that occurs often in the world of public works. An employee is called to their supervisor’s office where they are informed that they have just been named the Department’s new facility manager. Oftentimes this announcement comes with no warning and the employee has little to no background in facility maintenance. So what do they do? Although the above situation can be overwhelming, by following the below simple steps the stress of transitioning into the new position, as well as facility risk, can be minimized.

Your Role How to survive Know The role of a facility manager is vast. becoming a facility Not only are they responsible for manager facility maintenance, but are often

Shonte’ Eldridge, PMP Chief of Special Projects City of Baltimore, Maryland Member, APWA Facilities & Grounds Committee

required to perform other tasks that are not listed in the job description such as the role of contractor, design specialist, negotiator, safety officer, etc. During the first days of being named a facility manager it is important to not only be clear on the facilities the position is responsible for, but also what aspects of managing those facilities are included. Newly assigned facility managers should avoid making the mistake of assuming something was not their responsibility, to only learn at the last minute or when it’s too late that it was.

Walk the Walk During the first month, a newly assigned facility manager should visit every facility under their care to learn how to get to them, what activities occur in them and where key building operations are located within the facility. An emergency can occur at any time of the day, and trying to locate the address and navigate to the facility, which might be remote, can waste valuable time—especially when the staff is relying on the facility 64

manager to direct their actions or make decisions.

Know Whom to Contact As part of the step above, facility managers should also take the time to meet the employees directly responsible for the day-to-day operations of the facilities under their direction. This includes not only chiefs and superintendents, but also the employee(s) that have been taking care of the facility for the last several years if not decades. In a perfect world every detail regarding a facility would be documented, every water and gas shutoff valve clearly identified, and signs directing staff to key facility controls would be posted. However, most often this is not the case. Getting to know the employees that make the facility operate will not only prove crucial during an emergency, but they can also alert you to constant building problems and potential failures.

Know Your Critical Facilities As discussed earlier, the role of a facility manager sometimes goes beyond the responsibility of managing the day-today operations of a facility, and may include leading or assisting with the procurement of goods and services during an emergency or disaster that involves a facility. During the first three months in the new position, the facility manager should review the Department’s contingency of operations plan; or if one does not exist, start documenting where the critical facilities are, what critical infrastructure is in them and when possible what equipment would be needed if the facility goes offline. For example, some critical facilities might be able to sustain without power for a few hours, but will need a generator after a longer period of time (which


usually cannot be purchased at a big box store). A well-informed facility manager would already know this and have contingencies in place. In other instances, knowing which facilities are considered critical would also help the facility manager ensure they are secured when anticipating extreme inclement weather. Ideally all facilities should be secured, but if there are limited resources then securing the critical ones would be the priority.

Know Your Vendor Options and Procurement Policy

such a document does not exist, the facility manager should interview various building superintendents and chiefs as well as human resources personnel to identify potential concerns. The facility manager should also document the age of high-cost items such as roofs’ HVAC systems. Many departments do not think of facilities as assets and therefore do not include many facility-related items in their capital improvement plans. However, doing so would be a wise investment.

Facility managers are often bombarded with requests from employees and senior staff. Facility amenities can range from new carpet, windows, and restroom upgrades to a different brand of hand soap. It would be impossible for a facility manager to know every single vendor option, but they should know and understand what groups of categories are already under contract, what types of items must be bid out, and what services could be provided by another jurisdiction or agency.

The M310CS is one of the most productive pavers in the industry, using the EMCAD (Electronic Mix Control and Diagnostic) System, which is designed to manage power inputs and electronically control material outputs to maintain the desired mix design.
