Tracking Hydrant Flows in GIS

Blog_TrackingHydrantFlowsinGIS2.jpg

The Riverside Fire Department has been working with its Geographic
Information System (GIS) staff to produce updated fire hydrant flow maps
due considerably to a significant water system improvement project
conducted in 2010. The new configuration of infrastructure was updated
in the GIS along with the new flow information for the fire hydrants
that resulted from new and larger water mains. A large wall map was
produced for the fire station and smaller, double sided maps were
printed and laminated for use in the field. With the capabilities of
the GIS and the fact that it is a repository for all village data the
maps were designed to include all addresses throughout the village as
well. Combining the address and hydrant locations with flow information
provides a very valuable resource for the Fire staff.
