Central Arkansas Water (CAW) is a strong proponent of user technology, especially of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS). Woolpert, Inc. has partnered with CAW since their inception to help bring many of their technology initiatives to fruition.

At CAW, the GIS is a tool to help staff analyze water distribution and treatment features, communicate complex information through visualization, make more informed decisions and provide customers better support. Through the use of GIS in everyday operations, the recent implementation of a new GIS-centric CMMS, integration of the GIS and CMMS with the other key business systems and mobile deployment of both the GIS and CMMS to the field, CAW has been able to significantly and effectively improve their maintenance operations for both water distribution and treatment infrastructure. This approach is directly applicable to wastewater and other types of infrastructure.
