Backflow Prevention and Cross Connection Tracking
Track: Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater
Authors: Jean Pucel, Bill Hoisington
Green Bay Water recently converted a legacy cross-connection and backflow preventer tracking program into their GIS-Centric enterprise asset management system (Cityworks). In ten years, GBWU has inspected every connection to their water system and verified that an ASSE approved device is present. This presentation will discuss how we manage the inspection and maintenance of our meters and backflow preventers using GIS, improved our work flows and integrated the process with our CIS system.
