  1. 1. WEST VIRGINIA ASSOCIATION OFGEOSPATIAL PROFESSIONALSUPDATE ON WEST VIRGINIA COMPREHENSIVEPLANNING STUDYDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.
  2. 2. West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc. Background Mission of Project Overview of Project Data Collection Task Review GIS Task Overview
  3. 3. 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
  4. 4. 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
  5. 5. 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.
  6. 6. 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
  7. 7. 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
  8. 8. 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
  9. 9. 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

  12. 12. 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
  13. 13. West Virginia Comprehensive Planning StudyDan Ferrell, Thrasher Engineering, Inc.DATA COLLECTION CONTINUEDIssues Utilities not supplying information Variable mapping accuracy Inability to contact smaller utilities
  14. 14. 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
  15. 15. 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
