When you have a water delivery system that spans more than 10 counties, a service territory that’s more than 500 square miles, and more than 10,000 combined miles of pipes and wires to manage, mapping is a big deal!
For years, we’ve controlled all the mapping services internally, however we recently launched a new geospatial public portal. The portal is an interactive web mapping environment providing non-sensitive, four-service utility data to the public.
The mapping functionality benefits planning, engineering and construction companies who do business with us as well as all customers who want to know more about their utility or what’s happening in their neighborhood.
A few of the functions the service provides:
- Search for a specific location or address
- Run a query on assets, parcels, etc.
- Generate PDF maps at no charge
- Access to other publicly available utility documentation – Water service cards, survey control records, etc.
- Access County Assessor information
- Inform customers of rebate eligibility based on property location in the service territory
- View active and planned construction project information
- View/print/download a variety of static utility maps, including service boundary maps and construction projects by City Council district
One feature that may be most interesting to customers is the ability to view construction work. On any given day, we have crews all across the community working to improve the reliability of our systems. With the new mapping service, you can learn more about what we’re doing in your neighborhood or other projects of interest to you. The map only displays planned major projects, those lasting 2 weeks or longer.
You may not need to know where all 10,000 miles of pipes and wires are located, but having access to the information you need, when you need it is a big deal too!
