Flagstaff Water Services Sharing Ideas at Innovate Conference in Salt Lake City
December 1, 2022
Flagstaff Water Services IS Administrator Corryn Smith will present the innovative program developed for public works management at the Innovate: The Public Asset Management Conference presented by Cityworks and Trimble later this month. Corryn and Stormwater Manager Ed Schenk will present Managing Stormwater Infrastructure During Flooding Events, detailing how ESRI dashboards supported emergency flood response operations.
The breakout session description provides a glimpse into Flagstaff’s infrastructure management:
Flagstaff Water Services implemented Cityworks for their Stormwater Section in 2020, a year after the 2019 Museum Fire. In preparation for future rainfall, Cityworks was utilized to schedule and record preventative maintenance measures for both closed and open channel systems to minimize potential flooding impacts on the affected communities. Summer rains fell hard in 2021, which resulted in six major flooding events across Flagstaff. By leveraging Cityworks and ESRI Operational Dashboards, the Incident Management and Emergency Operations Teams had real-time inventory damage assessments, response, and resource allocations during the summer storm events. This CMMS-centric approach provided decision-makers a better understanding of the storm water system and facilitated infrastructure management.
