Using Mobile Technology to Meet NPDES Compliance...Cost-Effectively


Are you tired of spending hours each week manually checking your data in and out of disconnected database environments and looking to extend the reach of your mobile workforce…cost-effectively?

Join Bryan Chappell, Matt George, and Michael Johnson to hear how Pierce County Road Operations Division has successfully (and cost-effectively) implemented mobile GIS, location-based mapping, and cloud technology to achieve NPDES requirements for a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (including in-field data collection and view, real-time condition updates and editing, web-based crew dispatching, etc.)…and how you can too.

In this presentation, we’ll explore how Pierce County Public Works Road Operations successfully implemented the use of low-cost, out of the box in-house apps to centralize their assets and data, expand access to the field real-time, and increase their time and cost savings. Within this discussion, we’ll take a look at how Pierce County migrated their standalone map layers and data sets into an enterprise spatial content management system, and the steps for you to transition from a file folder based system to a mobile solution.

Additionally, we’ll discuss how you can best utilize these mobile technologies and solutions to manage your core assets and inspection data in a centralized database. We’ll explore how you can integrate mobile devices within your team’s daily operational activities (regardless of your team’s experience using smart devices) and how these mobile devices can be configured to run in a Mobile Device Management (MDM) environment with an internal VPN security setup. We’ll take a look at how mobile devices can assist in collecting historical data for analysis and what this means to those in the field. And, we’ll outline how to handle accessing your data remotely or in the field using wireless carrier networks…and what to do if work crews can’t get a signal.

Finally, we’ll explore how you can share your data for operations, peer, and public view to promote transparency within your organization and identify cost-benefits at the asset level.

Learning Objectives 
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:
