Many sewer managers today are faced with managing both their routine Sewer Maintenance Programs and also Infiltration/Inflow (I/I) Reduction Programs. As a result, tremendous amounts of data are generated relative to these programs. Furthermore, there is a need to compile, process, and analyze an assortment of data related to these programs.

In support of this need, we have developed a geographic information system (GIS) based system designed to manage both Sewer Maintenance and I/I Reduction Programs. The database design is based on graphics making it an ideal GIS Application. The system includes inventory, public, private, complaints, and reporting components. The system has been developed to be used primarily by sewer managers as a tool for managing day-to-day activities relating to sewer system tasks such as issuance of work orders and responding to customer complaints. The system can also be utilized by engineers in conjunction with sewer line modeling needs.

The system includes a private sewer system component. This component has been developed due to the importance of addressing private sewer I/I sources when establishing comprehensive sewer system I/I Reduction Programs. The magnitude of private source I/I flows for specific sewer systems will be incorporated into the presentation manuscript later with up-to-date data.
