Abstract

Due to the end of lifetime of infrastructure assets, water managers need to develop strategies for their replacement or demolishment. We outline four distinct reasons in which replacements differ from new assets and analyze which particular considerations about replacement can complement lifecycle management (LCM) practices. We conclude that these replacement considerations lead to additional technical design features for hydraulic structures and other assets. Complementing LCM with considerations about the new asset lifecycle after replacement informs planning approaches for developing adequate replacement strategies in the context of asset management.
