Abstract: Water and sewer agencies are constantly seeking ways to operate more efficiently, provide higher levels of service, and manage the risks associated with maintaining their infrastructure assets. Many of these agencies are evaluating computer based solutions to enhance their operations and some have identified AM/FM/GIS (Automated Mapping/Facilities Management/Geographic Information Systems) as a promising technology. AM/FM/GIS technology integrates computer aided mapping, geographic analysis, planning, engineering, facilities management, reporting, and decision support. This paper will describe how the Auburn Sewer District is implementing their AM/FM/GIS solution and the costs and benefits derived since starting their project at the end of 1989.
