#2020 - "GIS Implementation for Water Distribution System Management & Analysis” IEPA#5382Delivered on: 3/24/2010
RTC Hours: 1 Total Hours: 1
Presented by: Andy Zaletel, Baxter & Woodman, Inc.
The session will provide general information, technical guidance, and an overview of the process utilized for the application of a Geographic Information System (GIS) for a water distribution system. GIS can provide an organization with the ability to construct, develop, and utilize water system specific data in an innovative format that will assist in the overall analysis and reporting capabilities for the users.
The session will provide the attendees with the concept of GIS and software available to implement GIS into your water system programs. Through this training the process and key components of implementing and utilizing GIS for water system analysis will be demonstrated. Although each organization is different, the overall process can be applied to better understand and implement a usable and reliable GIS. Particular attention will be given to utilizing the organizations existing information and incorporation in the GIS as well as outline the available options for additional data creation through GPS and field based data collection methods.
Case studies will be provided that relate GIS with comprehensive planning and the type of reports that can be generated to assist the organization in evaluating capital improvement needs. The use of GIS has also enhanced the accuracy and usability of water distribution modeling software.
