Selected GIS Projects Completed for Utilities
Harwich Water Department - The Harwich Water Department embraces GIS in its entirety. Scott created numerous water system related datasets, created map atlases, field viewers for the trucks, assisted in getting the data into an ArcServer Environment.
Bridgewater Water Department - Bridgewater started with next to no data and built a functioning GIS system. Scott provided the Town with a functional GIS system by creating base maps, updating the Town’s parcel lines, building a functional hydrant map from existing data and the creation of water lines, sampling locations and sources.
Lincoln Water Commission - Lincoln needed assistance converting their existing AutoCAD files into a GIS database. This allowed staff to access and organize the information in a useful manner. Field map books and a procedure to regularly update the data were implemented.
North Brookfield Sewer Department - North Brookfield needed a complete GIS system for its sewer system managements. Paper CAD files were digitized, sewer lines were created as well as the associated manholes and treatment plants were spotted. This data was combined with the Town’s planimetric data to give them a complete GIS system. The NBSD Staff was also training in the use of the newly created ArcReader system.
Northeast Rural Community Assistance Program (RCAP Solutions) - RCAP needed assistance in mapping small community water suppliers in Rhode Island. The project included field visits with Town and Water Department officials, field data gathering and water source maps for each of the systems wells.
Bridgewater Department of Public Works - Per EPA Phase II Stormwater mandates, Bridgewater was tasked with mapping their stormwater system including pipes, receiving waters and outfall locations. Using existing information, the Town’s system was mapped, thereby meeting EPA’s mandate.
Harwich Fire Department - Firemen are very concerned about how much water will come out of a hydrant when called upon. However, even before that, they need to know the correct address. This sturdy Hydrant atlas, built to last in the cab of a fire truck, showed both.
