Leveraging AI to Foster a Sustainable Future for Local Agencies

July 31 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

The Florida LTAP Center is pleased to partner with the American Public Works Association (APWA) Florida Chapter to bring you this webinar. Local agencies and utility departments face daily challenges in maintaining infrastructure and providing high-quality public services, where every decision must be based on sound financial management. The Utilities Department of the City of Fort Myers has been working to leverage technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to address some of the challenges the City faces due to a consent order to improve its sewer and water system performance. Factors such as aging infrastructure, climate change, and population growth all need to be addressed with limited resources.

Attendees will learn how the City of Fort Myers has used the principles of asset management, capital planning and AI to support informed, data-driven decision making. This transformative strategy has enhanced resiliency and sustainability while reducing lifecycle costs within acceptable risk levels.

Learning Objectives:
• Discover how technology can play a pivotal role in shaping a more sustainable future.
• Explore the practical AI applications in the field of Public Works and Utilities Management.
• Learn how to inspire innovation and establish new industry standards through sharing the City’s success story and lessons learned.

• Jason Sciandra, Utilities Engineer, City of Fort Myers
• Addie Javed, APWA FL Leadership & Management Committee Chair and Vice President, Epic Engineering and Consulting Group
