Abstract:

The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU) needed to update its 10-year water and sewer master plan (WSMP) to develop a comprehensive capital program that would balance regulatory priorities with ongoing system maintenance and rehabilitation needs and system/community growth. EWSU wanted to utilize the City of Evansville's (city's) well-developed geographic information system (GIS) as a platform for conducting the data analysis. It was also interested in developing the GIS to be the central data/asset management system that would unite operation and maintenance of the water and sewer systems with the 10-year capital program.

This paper discusses the development of the GIS and its use for the development of the WSMP.
