SUMMARY: Performing routine maintenance of a utility system requires detailed knowledge of when and how the transmission or distribution system is geographically laid out. New technologies such as GIS, GPS and wireless rugged mobile computing are being used to perform these tasks. Seiler Instrument will demonstrate these new technologies as they relate to water/wastewater utility maintenance and inspection management.
