Building the Capacity of Drinking Water Systems

Software for Check-Up Program for Small Systems (CUPSS)

CUPSS is a legacy software application that was developed more than 10 years ago to assist drinking water and wastewater utilities in implementing an asset management plan. CUPSS was developed to run on Windows XP. Some users have reported challenges and compatible issues while trying to work with CUPSS in Windows 7, 8, and 10 operating systems. While still available for use, the tool is no longer being updated and may not compatible with the latest computer operating systems. Additional asset management tools and resources can be found on the Asset Management Resources for States and Small Drinking Water Systems page.
