White House Utility District (WHUD) invites Esri Water Conference guests to go “inside” the GIS-centric, smart utility district. During the in-depth tour, WHUD will explain and illustrate why the district re-centered operations around GIS and outline the steps it took to become GIS-centric. It will also take visitors on a tour around the district to see GIS in action – from water production and distribution to employee empowerment and productivity. Participants will divide into two tracks:
This track, which is more geared toward administrative/support roles, will give guests a 20,000-foot view of the GIS-centric utility operations, show how it’s using GIS to drive engineering principles and workflows, and draw attention to other, non-traditional uses of GIS such as internal and external communications.
This track is geared toward customer service, field crews, meter teams, water quality experts, and other more operational positions. It will provide the same 20,000-foot view but will delve deeper into how the district utilizes GIS in daily operations, from asset management and water loss programs to customer service and routing.
