Track: Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater
Authors: Graham Symmonds, Tony Taglia
Water utilities are losing revenue a result of data leaks. By employing a GIS-based field audit tool, utilities can now validate the data in customer information platforms, cross-reference with maintenance and tax parcel data and verify the details of each account–meter size, services etc. Using GIS to collate the data sources and present to the user a map-based presentment is critical to rapidly validating the utility’s infrastructure information and leads to significant revenue increases.
