Hampton Roads Sanitation District

HRSD uses FME to provide web-based data validation and loading services which facilitate the centralization of data from 14 localities.

HRSD implemented an online data contribution service to collect pipeline and pump station data from 14 localities into a single repository. This information is used in planning to lower the environmental impact of their wastewater systems. Through its automated validation and loading capabilities, FME Server facilitated the contribution of data and ensured that it conformed to the repository’s data model.

FME saves the GIS team time and effort in keeping the repository up-to-date by making it easy for contributors to upload revised data. The automated upload, validation and transformation process has saved weeks of time over manual data collection and processing. The end product, a centralized, accurate view of wastewater collection system, helps identify areas that need improvement.

The Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) is a utility that was created to prevent pollution, protect public health and support community development by providing wastewater collection and treatment.

"We now have a system that can quickly get the localities' data into our hands, without having to worry about whether the locality is meeting the specified data model and quality requirements." - Clay Wise, Senior Programmer Analyst for HRSD
