WV Water & Sewer Project (2010) WV Water & Sewer Project (2010) Presentation Transcript

  • WEST VIRGINIA ASSOCIATION OFGEOSPATIAL PROFESSIONALSUPDATE ON WEST VIRGINIA COMPREHENSIVEPLANNING STUDYDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.
  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc. Background Mission of Project Overview of Project Data Collection Task Review GIS Task Overview
  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc. West Virginia Infrastructure and Jobs Development Council (IJDC) ◦ Created by the West Virginia Legislature in 1994 ◦ Clearing house for State and Federal Funds for water and wastewater projects ◦ Established a revolving loan fund ◦ Authorized to issue revenue bonds ◦ The Legislation requires an update every 3 years West Virginia Water Development Authority (WDA) ◦ Provides loan processing and administration to West Virginia’s water and wastewater projects
  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.WDA/IJDC – Hired Camp, Dresser, & McKee, Inc. (CDM) and Thrasher Engineering, Inc. (TEI) to develop comprehensive plan CDM – Lead organization to develop plan TEI – Assigned to collect data
  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc. MISSION Develop technology tools to help identify, prioritize, manage, track and accelerate water, wastewater, and storm water projects in a cost-effective and efficient manner throughout West Virginia.
  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.PROJECT OVERVIEW Enhance the funding process for public utility projects ◦ More projects to construction quicker Develop financial tools to assist in effective utilization of funds for utility projects Collect information and mapping for utilities in West Virginia ◦ Create a Geographic Information System (GIS) to assist in identifying areas in the state which are served, unserved, or underserved
  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.DATA COLLECTION Over 600 water, sewer, and storm sewer regulated utilities Developed a process to collect data and mapping Two Primary Sources ◦ Retrieved electronic data from online sources and State Agencies ◦ Contacted utilities to collect data and mapping for systems
  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.DATA COLLECTION CONTINUED Mapping provided in different forms ◦ GIS ◦ Record Drawings ◦ Highlighted on USGS Quad or County Highway Map ◦ Drawn on a napkin
  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.DATA COLLECTION CONTINUED Mapping collection items consisted of: ◦ Served Area ◦ Service Area ◦ Office Location ◦ Treatment Plant Location ◦ Master Meter Locations Mapping was loaded to GIS Completed maps were sent to utility operators for review

  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.DATA COLLECTION CONTINUED 95% of al utilities with over 500 customers have been collected and mapped. ◦ Quality Control Maps have been sent to utilities. Most utilities with less than 500 customers have been collected and mapped. ◦ Quality Control Maps have been sent to utilities. Still Chasing Stragglers
  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.DATA COLLECTION CONTINUEDIssues Utilities not supplying information Variable mapping accuracy Inability to contact smaller utilities
  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.DATA COLLECTION CONTINUEDWhat Remains Collect remaining utility mapping Collect Service Areas (Jurisdictional Boundaries) Quality Control Mapping
  • West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.GIS TASK OVERVIEW Data will be assembled and implemented in a central GIS data environment A series of WebGIS applications will be developed to support data access Sustainable policies and procedures will be developed Manage physical location of data Camp, Dresser McKee will provide support throughout duration of this project
