BEST PRACTICES IN UTILITY MANAGEMENT: INNOVATIONS AT MOULTON NIGUEL WATER DISTRICT
Abstract:This paper presents a case study of innovative utility management system improvements implemented for the Moulton Niguel Water District (MNWD) in Southern California. The system includes facility descriptions, operating procedures, databases, construction drawings and system models. The databases, which include maintenance management, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and customer data, are being integrated and presented via convenient schematic and geographical user interfaces. The aggregate of these data and tools is called the Management System Standard Operating Procedures (MSSOP). MSSOP is proving highly successful in providing a single source of consistent, up-to-date asset data for high performance facility operation and maintenance. This paper presents an overview of MNWD's ongoing program of improvements to their utility management systems, with emphasis on MNWD's time-of-use (TOU) pumping analysis models and geographic information system (GIS). Improvements to MNWD's recycled water management systems are ongoing and will be completed in the summer of 2001. Improvements to the water and sewer management systems, including a geographic information system (GIS), are in the initial implementation stages.
