Track: Public Works
Authors: Rogelio Matta, Joe Field
Over the last ten years Fontana CA a City of 200,000 has used ESRI and Lucity software to manage City infrastructure. In 2010 the City launched a project to identify irrigated and non-irrigated public landscaped areas, build the layers into our GIS and CMMS. This effort created an opportunity for an irrigation water management project. With the cost of water escalating this effort is assisting staff in creating and monitoring water budgets across the entire network of sites.
