Effective and up-to-date Engineering Design Guidelines are critical for public utilities’ long-term strategy of bringing consistency to their design approaches, reducing construction change orders, and incorporating lessons learned. In 2015, IEUA started the foundational work of establishing its Guidelines for the various design disciplines. The value of these Guidelines improved significantly through their implementation and frequent updates. Documenting O&M preferences and lessons learned was accomplished with relevant staff from Operations, Maintenance, Engineering, and Construction to review applicable Guidelines and validate their accuracy and completeness. A tabular form was utilized to make the Guidelines easy to interpret, track, and modify in the future, a significant success for IEUA.
1. The Engineering Design Guidelines provide a simpler and more effective approach than Standard Specifications for IEUA.
2. The innovative tabulated format made it much easier to use, track, and update the Guidelines.
3. Significant cost savings were achieved by addressing areas that are common sources of inconsistencies.
