Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Services

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a geospatial platform that enables users such as water utilities, wastewater utilities, stormwater utilities, power companies, engineering firms and government agencies the ability to create, organize, analyze and share geographic information, as well as assist in daily operations and maintenance tasks. GIS allows a water utility, for example, the capabilities to support daily business needs such as:

  • Sustainable management of the water utility's infrastructure.
  • Cost recovery such as water loss control, rate stabilization, and development fees.
  • Emergency preparedness and response.
  • Planning and financing of capital improvements.
  • Communication/transparency with customers.
  • Environmental stewardship such as watershed protection, water supply protection and conservation.

Other applications that can benefit from GIS technology include:

  • Facilities Management
  • Trail Network Modeling
  • Watershed Modeling
  • Stormwater Mitigation
  • Traffic Studies
  • Traffic Sign Management
  • Asset Management Programs
  • Snowplow Management
