Intelligent water management begins with GIS

Every water department needs to understand where their assets are, how water, wastewater or stormwater flows through those assets, and who will be affected when those assets fail. GIS gives utilities the planning and operational insights they need to manage their asset registry, system performance, network connectivity, optimize work and easily collaborate.
