For a water utility, asset management plays a significant role in overall financial performance. With the use of effective asset management, it is possible to reduce overall infrastructure costs instead of waiting until the assets fail, incurring higher than necessary costs. Mapping a water system’s assets can greatly assist with developing an asset management plan and your ability to locate assets during an emergency. Participants will receive a step-by-step tutorial on how to get started on mapping their water system’s assets using Google Earth Pro for project planning, public presentations and developing capital improvement plans.
Participants will learn:
· The basic tools of Google Earth needed to map water system assets
· How to import scanned maps and handheld GPS coordinates
· How to derive water main pipe lengths, project planning and cost estimating
· How to edit, save and share your Google Earth maps with project team members and the public
The recommended audience includes operators, managers and board members.
Participants should download and install the free Google Earth software prior to the class (https://earth.google.com/web/).
