Leveraging GIS Data and Tools for Maintaining Hydraulic Sewer Models
Track: Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater
Authors: Ben Gamble, Joseph Koran
MSDGC maintains a hydraulic system wide model (SWM) that is based upon a robust geographic information system (GIS). The SWM is a planning tool that supports activities associated with MSDGC’s capital improvement plan (CIP) and asset management projects. Maintaining the SWM is accomplished by utilizing ArcGIS and custom tools that interact between the GIS and the SWM. Developing custom tools for ArcGIS has allowed MSDGC to effectively identify changes in the GIS and update the SWM accordingly.
