GIS for Water Utilities

Smart water utilities is underpinned with the knowledge of where infrastructure is located. A GIS data repository is the key to structured information management that underbuilds the efficient service delivery of water to clients. In GIS, spatial information is accessible for collaboration across your organisation, from field to office to optimise workflow and to inform customer, asset and billing systems on the latest status of the water network.

Water Data Management:

  • Seamless Field to Office data communication and verification.
  • Geographic view of asset location, contributing to GRAP compliance.
  • Improved Asset Management.
  • Know where your assets (i.e. pipelines, meters, pumps etc.) are.
  • Know the status of assets and see areas of forecasted maintenance spending.

Revenue Enhancement:

Revenue Enhancement:

Map your Meters
  • Know the number of broken water meters and the number of properties where no meter is installed and income is lost.
  • Field confirmation of latest meter readings, backed up with barcode scanning and photo verification.
  • Geographically delineate areas of high and low water consumption.
Planning
  • Future planning to accommodate development and adding customers to an existing water network.

Improve Service Delivery:

  • Know where your clients live and locate their service requests efficiently.
  • Network data traces helps to locate affected customers when there is a burst pipe or a broken pump.
  • Manage field workforce from a spatial view. Dispatch task teams based on location of the field workers and the location of the incident. This saves time and money.
  • Real time monitoring of water pressure and leaks detection on dashboards.
  • Outage management maps and dashboards provide management with a view on the status of the water network.
