Build a sustainable water utility.

Reliable water services come from having one go-to repository of data. GIS is no longer your single-function tool for locating pipes and facilities. It’s now a whole platform for understanding and optimizing water operations. Integrate information from sensors, meters, crews, pipes, and more, through the common language of location. Store this data in your GIS. Share interactive maps in the boardroom; push functional maps to field devices. When your data flows, so does your water.

"With GIS, we have saved roughly 50 percent of our time in water main shut-offs just by being able to access maps."

Alan Lee, Capital Projects Manager, Opelika Utilities
