East Gippsland Water provides a full range of retail water supply functions, including water harvesting and storage, water treatment, urban water supply, and wastewater collection, treatment, disposal and re-use, as well as trade waste services to small industrial and commercial customers for the communities of East Gippsland. Geographically this covers an area from Bairnsdale to Dinner Plain in the north and Mallacoota in the eastern tip of Victoria. Most towns are located on the coastal plains, exceptions being Omeo, Dinner Plain and Swifts Creek in the high country.
East Gippsland Water turned to Intergraph to create a solution that would enable the authority to manage its assets easily. In the project’s first phase, Intergraph and the authority developed a database model to define the network relationships between features within the sewer and water pipeline system, establish data integrity rules, and control data editing. Phase II of the project created the East Gippsland Water intranet site.
