We have helped many communities develop comprehensive asset management programs for their water and/or wastewater systems. Imagine having accurate information of the location, type, and age of your buried utilities available at the click of a mouse, or a couple of finger touches on a tablet the field. With GPS tools and GIS software, we have provided communities with digital catalogues of their systems in a variety of formats. We’ve even helped develop preventive maintenance and capital improvement plans that are geo-referenced based on the reported age and condition of system assets.
Our GPS receiver uses cell phone technology to communicate with base stations to provide real time kinematic spatial referencing with sub-centimeter accuracy. If cell service is not available, the GPS receiver can provide sub-meter accuracy. We then use GIS mapping software to create utility infrastructure maps that are up-to-date, accurate and spatially referenced along with a powerful database that can store information about each point for many purposes. All this at your fingertip.
Our typical Asset Management program services comply with State of Vermont SRF requirements and we have a history of obtaining grant funding to help communities complete these utility improvement projects. We closely monitor State requirements, and have already begun assisting communities with preparation of their required lead service inventories.
