The Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD) is responsible for wastewater services for 2.5 million people in Orange County, California. In an effort to streamline the inspection of over 8,000 manholes, OCSD embarked on a project to deploy Cloud and Mobile technology from Trimble and Esri to automate the manhole inspection process, eliminate paper based data collection, and move to a centralized GIS based electronic repository for all manhole asset and maintenance records on the sewer network.
