SUEZ Water New Jersey, Inc.

H2M was contracted by SUEZ Water New Jersey, Inc. to provide design coordination, construction administration, and construction observation of the replacement of multiple miles of water mains throughout Hudson and Bergen Counties in New Jersey.  As part of these duties, H2M had to efficiently quantify and document: 1) existing site conditions; 2) new materials that got installed; and, 3) any deviation from the original design plan.  The highly detailed documentation demanded by SUEZ and the high workload throughout multiple counties led H2M to develop and implement a real-time construction management program catered specifically to SUEZ. Throughout the lifetime of a water main replacement project a given asset is entered into and categorized using numerous software platforms – AutoCAD, ArcGIS, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF, etc.  There was no clear and efficient way for the data to navigate and migrate through the programs until H2M decided to imple ...

Greenlawn Water District

H2M migrated the District’s existing GIS distribution system map from Desktop GIS format to the ArcGIS Online cloud. ArcGIS Online has extended the reach of the District’s GIS map to all personnel, both in the office and in the field.  Distribution System water mains, valves and fire hydrants were all placed into the GIS along with the necessary data attributes, such as main sizes and hydrant numbers. Over 1,500 historical valve sketches were scanned and attached to the geographic valve location as well as over 11,000 tap cards, which were scanned and linked by account number to the parcel layer. The attached features allow District personnel to instantly access and view documents in the field.

South Farmingdale Water District

H2M migrated the District’s existing GIS distribution system map from Desktop GIS format to Esri’s ArcGIS Online cloud. ArcGIS Online has extended the reach of the District’s GIS map to all personnel, both in the office and in the field. The ArcGIS Online map contains all desktop layers, including water mains, valves, fire hydrants, plant site, water main breaks, tank locations, boundary lines and parcels. Over 1,500 scanned records were attached to the GIS data. The attached features allow District personnel to instantly access and view documents and plans in the field. Utilizing Esri’s Collector app on mobile devices, District personnel maintain hydrant flushing, hydrant maintenance and valve maintenance logs in the field. District personnel populate data and attach pictures in the field. The maintenance logs are instantly updated to the valve or hydrant layer in ArcGIS online.

Stormwater Consortium of Rockland County

By Stanley Mui on 6/8/2018
H2M managed the creation of a GIS database for mapping the Storm Water assets for the Storm Water Consortium of Rockland County, which is comprised of 23 municipalities in the County. H2M, leveraging ESRI’s ArcGIS Online, hosted a data website which provides access to a centralized web mapping system. H2M also developed a mobile application using Esri’s Collector for ArcGIS to assist the 23 Towns/Villages in the collection of field data for the compilation of information on the Storm Water assets to satisfy the requirements of the NYS SPDES MS4 program. Combining the original data collected from existing storm water system maps and the additional field work to identify storm water outfall locations, the project will result in a comprehensive mapping of the municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4).
