Water Violations Overview

During water restrictions, the Watering Violations solution can be used to enforce water conservation efforts and provide revenue. The Watering Violations solution allows field crews to collect watering violations information and photos on a smartphone or tablet. The information collected can then be used by the accounting department to ensure the fines are collected. Watering Violations is a configuration of an ArcGIS organization and the Collector for ArcGIS application to collect watering violations in the field.
