Beyond A Project Model: Why You Need a Sewer / Storm Master Database

For years, engineer and planning teams have used hydraulic and hydrologic models to adjust and plan for long term changes to the system. Many times, when the core project of the model is completed the model is left without updates for long periods of time. Now utilities and engineering firms are using interconnected modeling databases to support ongoing planning, operations, and real-time system management. The status quo is changing, read this article to learn more:

How Hard is it to Create an AMP?

Creating an Asset Management Plan (AMP) can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. Organizations with mature asset management programs typically have very complex AMPs and yet smaller organizations have gotten away with not using one at all but with the passing of the America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) for Community Water Systems serving drinking water to populations greater than 3,300 you kind of need one, now. Read this article to learn more about developing an AMP that fulfills the requirements of your organization...
