Partnerships for Infrastructure
The network of pipelines in the US and around the globe continues to age while the need for management, expansion and rehabilitation of these critical assets grows. Currently, large sums of capital are budgeted by municipalities in an attempt to modernize and expand this infrastructure to comply with environmental standards and supply safe, reliable, utility services to tax payers. Unfortunately, revenue falls short of the capital needed for maintenance, upgrades, and expansion of aging systems. Geospatial Corporation has combined innovative technologies, data management and a new Public Private Partnership business model to provide an economical long-term solution to the problem of budget shortfalls and capital improvement requirements while providing a program to improve efficiencies and service levels in the management of the world's critical underground infrastructure.
Geospatial with its complete array of underground mapping technologies and its GeoUnderground™ infrastructure data management system is uniquely positioned to aggregate this data, providing the client with information as to exactly where their infrastructure is and where it is not. This information provides tremendous value to the client as they seek to make the best management decisions regarding the maintenance and expansion of their underground assets.
This approach to facilities management offers risk reduction, compliance with the initial stages of CSO programs, broad efficiencies, and a long-term revenue stream back to the municipal, state, or Federal agency. It offers value to all stages of the utility life cycle, by making detailed subsurface 3D information on all pipelines and conduits available in a secure web-based GIS format to utilities, engineers, contractors and planners.
