NS GIS / ThirdWave Carry Out GIS Master Plan for the Anchorage Water & Wastewater Utility
June 21, 2017
The strategic partnership of NS GIS (Los Angeles, CA) and ThirdWave has resulted in a key win in Alaska for the Anchorage Water & Wastewater Utility (AWWU). The Utility’s mission is to support the public health, safety and economic interests by providing quality Water and Wastewater services in a responsible, efficient and sustainable manner.
AWWU is responsible for various Water and Sewer on-going Capital Improvement and Private Development projects including the following:
Capital Projects: Utility improvement projects for the expansion, repair, upgrade or replacement of a Utility asset to ensure safe and adequate water and wastewater services are always available for AWWU customers.
Private System Projects: A privately funded, on-site project, under construction which is reviewed by AWWU to ensure the project is built to existing system specifications and standards. Examples of these are single resident lot improvement projects.
Private Development Projects: Privately funded and managed projects extending water and sewer mains to serve private property. Initiated and managed by property owners with AWWU issuing permits to ensure safe and adequate water and wastewater service. Examples of these are private subdivision developments and extension projects.
Hydrant Information: Locations and Red Top Fire Hydrants for permit holders.
This engagement will leverage NS GIS prominence and GIS expertise with ThirdWave’s patented Rapid Workflow® strategic planning methodology to produce a responsive GIS Master Plan that will allow AWWU better meet its mission to the municipality of Anchorage.
