Feature Story

/// Down to the Shore: New Jersey American Water Maps a Million Assets with Sub-Inch Accuracy

New Jersey American Water - Ortley beach

When Hurricane Sandy transformed New Jersey, Chris Kahn saw the difference having a high-accuracy map makes: “In Mantoloking, it could take hours to days to find one service line under the rubble. In Ortley Beach, it took a few seconds.” That difference in location accuracy helped prompt New Jersey American Water to map over a million individual assets with sub-inch accuracy in a journey that took years. The effort paid off. Today, the utility estimates it’s saving $2.6M/year thanks to accurate maps.
