Audience: Operators, managers, or governing body of a water utility serving less than 3,000 customers and wastewater system processing less than 0.5 MGD.
GIS is a powerful tool that can be used in Asset Management, but it cannot do everything on its own. This workshop will help you to answer the following questions: What are the useful applications for small systems? How does GIS fit into your Asset Management decision making process? How can GIS help you with data collection and manipulation as well as organize and understand your data? RCAP Solutions, in collaboration with NHDES, is offering this workshop at no cost to help you and your utility with the day-to-day challenges and to ensure the everlasting challenge of protecting the environment. This hands-on, interactive workshop is made possible by funding through the USDA and has been approved by NHDES for 4 TCHs for both water & wastewater operators.
