AUTHORS: James Touchet*, Tyrand Fuller* – Suffolk County Water Authority

ABSTRACT: For decades, researchers, scientists, regulators, health departments, environmental laboratories and water suppliers have collected and analyzed water quality data from thousands of monitoring and public supply wells throughout Long Island. Millions of individual water quality test results have been managed and stored independently in databases of those same entities but never unified into one system. Combining the benefits of MS Excel spreadsheets and ArcGIS-Online web templates have now made the seemingly-impossible a reality: the creation of ArcGIS Online-based “WaterTraq”, a comprehensive visualization and analytical water quality application._x000D_
“WaterTraq” now allows these same entities and the public a simple method to search for any sampled analyte, including concentration and range and display the results visually. Water quality data can now be displayed both in spatial dimensions and time; it offers an unprecedented view into the Long Island, NY aquifer system. _x000D_
Nationwide, the replacement of failing water mains is considered a priority for water utilities. Main breaks can plague aging public water supply infrastructure; it’s critical to note the location of each incident and include key attributes. Configured ArcGIS Online-based web maps and Collector are invaluable tools for efficiently mapping these emergency situations and identifying potential break “clusters”; such applications can instantly support asset management and often supersede paper-based, work order-driven processes. Customer Service Technicians have transitioned from an ArcReader-based, multi step reporting process to a single, intuitive interface. Using Collector, repair status and outage estimates are communicated real-time and efficiently, with no paper!
