Presentation Title: Utilizing Advanced Technologies for Stormwater System Mapping and Condition Assessments

Description: Aging stormwater infrastructure is one of the biggest challenges facing communities today. With portions of the City of San Antonio’s stormwater collection system approaching 80 years old, a comprehensive understanding of the condition and location of the existing system was needed.  This presentation will provide an overview of the Pilot Phase of the Stormwater System Televising, Mapping, and Condition Assessment project initiated by the City of San Antonio in 2015 and provide information about the technologies used to complete the project.

 

Presentation Title: I Have a GIS and Asset Data, Now What?

Description: An effective infrastructure planning tool supports critical decision-making to ensure that the “right” pipes/assets are selected for rehabilitation at the right time.  RJN’s approach uses a customized six-step process to build a valuable asset management tool that can drive our client’s ongoing capital planning.  This process involves setting up a database, importing inspection data/field data, conducting “consequence of failure” and “likelihood of failure analyses”, performing risk analysis, and building a “decision tree” process that will result in comprehensive action plans.  This presentation will provide details about each of these six steps in the process.
