INFRAMAP AT EBMUD: VALVE MAINTENANCE & SHUTDOWN REPORTING IN THE FIELD
Track: Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater
Authors: Teri Alderson, Patrick Ward
EBMUD provides water to 1.3 million customers in Northern CA. Field staff work 24/7 maintaining a complex water system including over 90,000 valves. To assist with locating, exercising and recording data on valves and shutdowns, they deployed infraMAP Software, a mobile GIS solution for Asset Inventory/Maintenance. The software's Pipe Isolation/Shutdown tool allows staff to record/track valve activity via a GIS interface, resulting in replacing 2 work order systems and maximizing efficiency.
