Want to give Esri feedback on ArcGIS for Water Utilities and suggest new functionality? Curious about how other ArcGIS users have deployed ArcGIS for Water Utilities or migrated to the information model? Do you want to learn about our future plans and meet the development team?
Then please join us at the ArcGIS for Local Government Special Interest Group meeting at the 2012 Esri International User Conference. The meeting takes place on Wednesday July 25th from 12:00 to 1 PM in Room 24 A.
ArcGIS for Water Utilities is a module of ArcGIS for Local Government. Both share a common information model that supports the deployment of over 50 maps and apps. So this is your opportunity to share knowledge with users in the water, wastewater and stormwater utility community as well as other industries and guide our future actions.
This year’s meeting was held at the Orlando Utilities Commission, Pershing Facility.
We had a great turnout this year and I would like to thank all of the attendees. I know that travel budgets continue to be tight. Participants this year included Hamton Roads Sanitation District, Charleston Water System, Orlando Utilities Commission, Woolpert, Esri Canada, St. Johns River Water Management District, Global Water, Collier County Public Utilities, Trimble, American Flow Control, City Works, DHI, and Wachs Water Services.
A big thank you to Trimble and Wachs Water Services for sponsoring breakfast and lunch!
We will be posting the presentations and the agenda from this meeting in the near future!

Esri Mug Conference. The Esri Mug
Conference is November 29th to December 1st in Philadelphia. The Water/Wastewater SIG Meeting is 1:30 to
5:00 on December 1st.
Mug Conference registration is required to attend the
Water/Wastewater Special Interest Group Meeting and you can register here: http://www.esri.com/events/mug/registration/index.html
The Esri Mid-Atlantic Water/Wastewater Special Interest
Group is for the water, wastewater and stormwater ArcGIS user community in
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Washington D.C., West Virginia,
New York City, Long Island and surrounding areas.
Going forward we anticipate the Esri Mid-Atlantic W/WW SIG
will be meeting twice a year. One meeting will be at the Mug Conference in
December and another meeting will be in the spring at a user site. We’ll spend some time at the end of this
meeting organizing for the Spring 2011 SIG meeting, this includes brainstorming
on future presentation topics and presenters.
We’ve also created a LinkedIn Group for the Special
Interest Group - http://linkd.in/bum9lz. For those that can’t make the December 1st
meeting, we’ll be using the LinkedIn Group to share information about this and upcoming
We’ve created a LinkedIn Group for the Esri Mid-Atlantic Water/Wastewater Special Interest Group so we can share more details about our first meeting and answer any questions. Here is a link to the group – http://linkd.in/bum9lz
Going forward we’ll be using this LinkedIn group to plan future SIG meetings and hope it becomes a useful forum for water, wastewater and stormwater ArcGIS users in the Mid-Atlantic region.
As we’ve previously announced, the SIG’s first meeting is at the ESRI Mid-Atlantic User Group Conference December 1st in Philadelphia, PA. More information about the MUG Conference and the SIG can be found here – http://bit.ly/bZGvCX
We’d also like to announce that we’ve selected our first user presentation for the December 1st SIG meeting. Joe Spollen will be presenting on “A Day in the Life of a Water Company GIS Analyst”. During this presentation Joe will share his experience using ArcGIS Desktop and Server applications at a large private water utility to maintain water distribution system data, create and share maps, support capital planning and other common daily tasks for water utility GIS users.
We’ll be sharing more of the agenda as we confirm other user presentations.
We’re excited to announce that an ESRI Mid-Atlantic Water/Wastewater Special Interest Group is forming and the first meeting is December 1st at the Esri Mid-Atlantic User Group Conference – http://www.esri.com/events/mug/index.html.
The 2010 Esri Mug Conference is November 29th to December 1st in Philadelphia and the Water/Wastewater Special Interest Group Meeting is taking place from 1:30 to 5:00 PM on the last day of the conference. Mug Conference registration is required to attend the Water/Wastewater Special Interest Group Meeting and you can register here: http://www.esri.com/events/mug/registration/index.html
The Mug Conference is the capstone Esri event for the Mid-Atlantic Region and holding the Water/Wastewater Special Interest Group at the Mug conference gives water and wastewater users the opportunity to learn, interact and forge relationships with other utilities and GIS users across the region.
The Mid-Atlantic Water/Wastewater Special Interest Group is for the water, wastewater and stormwater ArcGIS user community in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Washington D.C., West Virginia, New York City, Long Island and surrounding areas.
We are currently working on the agenda for the inaugural Water/Wastewater Special Interest Group. We anticipate this first meeting will include presentations from Esri on the ArcGIS 10 updates of the Water Utility Resource Center Templates, software product briefings, user presentations, discussions and organization for the next Special Interest Group meeting that will be held in approximately 6 months.
Going forward we anticipate the Mid-Atlantic Water/Wastewater SIG will be meeting twice a year. One meeting will be at the Mug Conference in December and another meeting will be in the spring at a user site.
We’d also like to encourage our water utilities to exhibit your maps in the Mug Conference Map Gallery – http://www.esri.com/events/mug/participate/map-gallery.html
