Abstract: The Cobb County Water System in suburban Atlanta, Georgia selected RJN Environmental Associates, Inc. to provide infiltration and inflow (I/I) source detection and mapping services in the Olley/Mud/Noses Creek areas. Manhole location coordinates were determined by using Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. This paper will trace the progress of the project, describing the results with an analysis of difficulties which occurred. The purpose will be to illustrate how which occurred. The purpose will be to illustrate how the emerging GPS technology can be integrated with established database software and electronic mapping.
