Tracking Hotspots: Putting Sewer Cleaning on the Map

Water, wastewater, and storm water utilities keep track of distribution, collection, and drainage networks as well as related planning and customer care. You may be aware of the benefits of using GIS to manage infrastructure and assets, but did you know these benefits extend to improving planning, customer care, and administrative processes? A location-based approach to managing your enterprise helps you meet operational challenges.
GIS provides a common platform for accessing all your business data, updating your network information, integrating work orders, finding customer information, or preparing a report. With built-in spatial analysis tools, you can support network tracing as well as analyze development trends affecting future demand. Visualization and mapping features give you an overall, connected view of your network in relation to your customers and surrounding infrastructure.
You can even take GIS a step farther to keep up with compliance, TV inspection data, and condition ratings obligations.
