GA URISA – February 11th 2014 Luncheon

Jan 27, 2014 | Atlanta, GA URISA

Building Atlanta’s GIS

Atlanta, Georgia, the ninth largest metropolitan area in the United States, has one of the biggest and oldest water and wastewater systems in the country. The city delivers water to more than one million customers through a network of 2,700 miles of pipe. Three water treatments plants (WTPs) and four wastewater treatment plants serve the systems. The system includes water and wastewater mains ranging from 2 to 72 inches in diameter for water and 2 to 96 inches for wastewater. Some of the pipes are as much as 90 years old.

In a strategic effort to sustainably rehabilitate its aging system and increase system control, the city decided to implement a series of steps to fundamentally improve the Department of Watershed Management’s (DWM) infrastructure and work toward integrating its GIS with its current legacy and enterprise systems. To accomplish this, DWM embarked on a series of major initiatives, which advanced the GIS program and allowed it to provide a platform not only for web-based viewing capabilities but also for real-time field reporting and updating.
