Tucked into the mountains of Kentucky and bordered by the Ohio River, the Oldham County Water District (OCWD) serves 8,317 customers annually.
In 2001, OCWD created the first electronic maps representing its water system. In 2016, with a short-term goal to improve the operational efficiency of its field workflows and a longer-term goal of creating a highly accurate system of record that would serve its constituents well into the future, the OCWD explored technology advancements that could replace its costly, time-consuming field workflows.
“Installing each meter used to cost us approximately $211.91 in labor and fuel,” said Kenny Ratliff, OCWD GIS Manager. “With the high-accuracy mobile GIS workflow, the cost per meter went down to $111.19.”
