The Living Document D.C. WASA's Web-Based Plant-Wide Interactive Electronic Reference System (PIERS)
Abstract:The Advanced WWTP at Blue Plains is operated by the District of Columbia's Water and Sewer Authority (D.C. WASA), and is designed to process a dry weather flow of 370 MGD. As with most agencies of this size, creating, managing and distributing technical information, as well as day-to-day communications, is a never-ending challenge. Given today's information overload, too often that information is “stored ”on a bookshelf, “lost ”in a file cabinet, “buried ”on a hard drive, or perhaps even worse, that material is not kept current. D.C. WASA plant staff looked toward a technological solution to help find and extract information within the treatment plant. They have taken a proactive approach to tackle these concerns — a plant-wide interactive electronic reference system, which has as its basis the creation of a comprehensive “living document.”
