THE USE OF GIS FOR MUNICIPAL IN-HOUSE INFLOW/INFILTRATION INVESTIGATIONS
Abstract:The Town of Concord has implemented a Geographic Information System (GIS) to catalog and better manage its water and sewer utilities and associated infrastructure. Data compiled within the sewer GIS have been used to aid in infiltration and inflow investigations, allowing the town to inventory its pipes and manholes, track investigatory and rehabilitation work, organize inspection information, and model anticipated flows for comparison to actual flow measurements. The integration of the town's flow monitoring program and the capabilities of the GIS has permitted the town to perform I/I investigations largely in-house, allowing a great deal of flexibility in the I/I program and avoiding costly consulting fees.
