The Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD), which serves 17 localities in southeastern Virginia and a population of 1.6 million, has embarked on a an effort to upgrade its utility management systems in support of a regional hydraulic wastewater model. The hydraulic model must include the entire interceptor infrastructure as well as input from the 14 separate models of the participating localities that feed into the collection system. With data inputs coming from so many different sources, each with their own data schemas, a solution needed to be developed to manage the continuous transfer of data from the localities to the regional hydraulic model, as well as from HRSD back to the localities. Topics covered in this presentation will include how FME Server was customized and implemented to streamline the input and validation of the various data sources, how the solution provided tremendous time saving and data quality insurance, and how FME Server helped resolve complex data sharing challenges.
