WATERiD: Water Infrastructure Dtabase for Water & Wastewater


SUMMARY:  This presentation presents a project of developing a national database for water infrastructure system which includes both drinking water and wastewater.  The database is entitled as "WATERiD” and can be accessed at  Water infrastructure in U.S. is aging poorly and municipal governments are struggling to find easy access to comprehensive information about sustainability of their water infrastructure such as condition assessment, renewal engineering, subsurface utility engineering, best appropriate practices, and cost of technologies.  Such information can be used as knowledge by the various utilities but are not readily shared across utilities.  Because there is no easy accessible platform through which successful experiences and lessons learned can be shared, common mistakes are made repeated in different locations.  WATERiD is accommodating utilities to share their experience and lesson learned, and is a single point information center for the utilities where they can find all the water infrastructure sustainability relevant information.  To collect lessons learned and utility experience, more than 100 utilities throughout the U.S and 30 additional international utilities were contacted.  The data from utilities are compiled, taxonomically classified, and uploaded in WATERiD for sharing between the utilities.  This presentation starts with brief research needs and purpose, followed by WATERiD architecture, upload and search capability, and ends up with WATERiD future development work.  Sustainability building upon foundational WATERiD resources has and will continue to take the cooperation of utilities, organizations, and professionals from across the water infrastructure industry.

PRESENTER:  Dr. Sunil Sinha, ICTAS Water Infrastructure Center of Excellence, Virginia Tech
