In 2009, American Water began transitioning to SAP and GIS for the management of its water and wastewater assets. As of today, all state subsidiaries have an operational GIS; however, our new challenge is that the source data used to populate our GIS did not meet our accuracy requirements. To correct the inaccuracies in our data, each state implemented a GPS program. This presentation is an examination of the strategies and lessons learned from the GPS Programs for IL, IN, MO, TN and NJ.
