Old Sewer Mapping System Undergoes a Welcome Update
"More than just digital replicas, these maps are linked to millions of bits of information, or attributes — the size of the pipes, the dates they were built and repaired, what they were made of — that can be called up and sorted with the click of a mouse. The maps can be updated instantly when water mains and sewers are installed, removed or repaired. “This is a real live snapshot of what we have in the ground,” Mr. Roberts said. “These maps can now see in one spot what was on five or six drawings before.”
