Civil Systems, Inc. (acquired by Constantine Engineering in 2010) surveyed above-ground water and sewer features and developed a Geographic Information System (GIS) for the Water Works and Sewer Board of the City of Prichard in southwestern Alabama.
As part of this project, Constantine's staff completed the following tasks:
-Prepared base layer data obtained from the Mobile County GIS Department.
-GPS surveyed over 5,700 above-ground water and sewer features, including:
-1,490 water valves
-1,438 fire hydrants
-29 sewer lift stations
-40 sewer valves
-Using ESRI ArcMap software, developed GIS geodatabases from the field survey data and existing system documents (as -builts, old system maps, valve cards, etc.)
-Scanned system documents (e.g, as builts) and linked to GIS features.
-Published map books for field crew use.
-Trained Prichard's staff to use, maintain and update the GIS system.
-Installed ArcReader on Prichard computers for viewing published maps
