Using GIS technology to improve drinking water in Mississippi

In August 2022, the Pearl River in Mississippi flooded after severe storms, causing an already stressed drinking water treatment system in Jackson to collapse. Residents were cut off from clean drinking water, and the flooding exacerbated an issue that had afflicted the community for years. Our team was there to help.

Leveraging Esri’s ArcGIS utility network to build a geographic information system (GIS) from scratch, we’re helping repair, renovate, and upgrade Jackson’s unreliable supply of drinking water. Using historical records of the city’s water system, our team has created a digital map of the thousands of pipes delivering water to every corner of the city. This will allow us to fix broken pipes, leaks, and line breaks to maintain uninterrupted service to residents.

This project is a massive undertaking and GIS plays an important role: it ties everything together between the construction and design phases and gives our team essential knowledge of where the assets are located. The best part? While GIS allows our team to identify problem areas now, we can also use the digital rendering to diagnose problems for the city of Jackson in the future.
