TN Online Training | Data Collection and Mapping for Small Wastewater Systems: Making Electronic Maps Less Scary – Session 1
Session 1 | Tuesday, June 7, 2022
Session 2 | Thursday, June 9, 2022
*Register once for both sessions
Description: With limited revenues, aging infrastructure, and regulatory obligations to meet, a comprehensive approach to managing your wastewater system is vital. This 2-part training will cover Asset Management’s core components and asset data gathering to develop a robust asset inventory and event data that supports analysis and data-informed decision making.
In the second session, the training focuses on wastewater system mapping, including how and why GIS maps are useful to wastewater utilities. We will cover how locational data collected for your wastewater system assets can be used to create a map as well as examining some real-life examples of how utilities have used GIS maps to improve efficiency and practice better asset management. This training will explore a variety of mapping platforms and compare paid mapping products with free software programs to prepare you to select the right mapping software for your wastewater system. Throughout we will focus on useful resources available and how to best utilize collected system data.
