Welcome to Colorado Springs!
What a great location for our biannual meeting. Colorado Springs Utilities has a wonderful facility that overlooks Pike’s Peak. You really can not ask for a better view! And the weather was perfect, it was sunny and no snow.
This meeting’s history is long and distinguished. The first meeting was held 15 years ago and consisted of a small group of users, business partners and ESRI staff, whose main goal was to modify the “City of Glendale Database Design Document” into a data model that water/wastewater utilities could use. Since then this group has developed the “Water Utilities Data Model Book for 8.0” and it’s updates. They have also been instrumental in the development of the other data models, such as the simplified data models for water, wastewater and stormwater, the treatment plant models and the Team Water toolsets. Our latest projects include the beginning of the “Best Practice Reference Guides” and the simplified data model for irrigation districts.
We had a great turnout this year and I would like to thank all the attendees. I know that this is a difficult year financially and travel budgets are tight. We had over fifty participants including Greater Cincinnati Water Works, Portland Water Bureau, Denver Water, City of Fountain, Northern Colorado Conservancy, Black & Veatch, CDM, Malcolm Pirnie, iWater, MWH Soft, Trimble, and University of Colorado, just to name a few. It was wonderful to see so many new faces as well as our old friends.
The program was amazing and addressed timely/relevant issues (agenda below). If you are interested in any of these presentations we will be posting them on the Water Utilities Resource Center soon!
