Televised Sewer Integration

Blog_Televised_Sewer_Integration.png

Coordination between the Elk Grove Village Public Works and GIS
Departments recently has enabled integration of televised sewer records
into the GIS system. The initial objective of this effort was to be able
to show where televising has taken place and link, or access, the
corresponding videos by clicking on the sewer mains in a dynamic map. An
added benefit was realized during the integration process in that all
comments noted during the televising process such as the location of
service lines or where cracks exist in the pipes could be mapped and/or
queried.

Roughly a decade of sewer televising efforts was provided for this
process which represents a significant portion of the community. Having
so much information now connected to a mapping platform will allow the
Public Works staff to evaluate their sewer infrastructure and more
effectively plan improvements and maintenance. The GIS staff will also
be able to use much of this information in efforts to build more detail
into the sewer system such as mapping service lines.
