- Stormwater & Wastewater GIS Program Management
The Water Pollution Control (WPC) Department in Independence, Missouri, hired us to implement its geographic information system (GIS) and asset management initiatives. WPC’s goal was to build a stormwater and sanitary sewer GIS, enabling it to better manage assets throughout their entire life cycle.
Our initial project was to design and deploy the GIS. The first phase was to elicit and document the GIS requirements. Our analysts interviewed key department stakeholders and documented specific requirements for both the stormwater and sanitary sewer GIS data models. Next, we used past experience working with local government clients to develop stormwater and sanitary sewer GIS data models and industry-standard data models such as those produced by ESRI (i.e. the stormwater data model that is part of the Local Government Information Model) to develop WPC’s stormwater and sanitary sewer GIS data model.
After the GIS data model design effort, we worked with the city to inventory all stormwater and sanitary sewer assets to populate the GIS.
The third project was to help the department select, purchase and implement an asset management system (AMS). Our team conducted staff interviews to model daily maintenance business processes and to elicit AMS requirements. After evaluating system requirements and business processes, we worked with WPC to procure a platform. We then worked with WPC to implement the chosen AMS platform and to implement with the department’s GIS. The AMS was configured to improve maintenance business processes where possible and to satisfy decision making and reporting requirements.
