Overview

Configure Utility Network for Sewer

The Sewer Utility Network Configuration configures a utility network to behave like a sewer network and provides maps, services, and workflows to facilitate data management and analysis.

The Sewer Utility Network Configuration includes:

  • Configuration instructions
  • Schema for common sewer distribution components
  • Rules to define network behavior
  • Project for configuring and publishing the utility network services
  • Maps and apps to support common sewer utility workflows
  • Sample data

The Sewer Utility Network Configuration is a starting place to implement a utility network for sewer. It is not designed to provide an all-encompassing solution for all workflows and assets managed by a sewer utility. It is intended to be extended to meet any additional asset, workflow, or 3rd party system integration needs.

Utility network capabilities are available through the ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension.

Considerations

The Sewer Utility Network Configuration is a starting place to implement a utility network for a sewer system. The included information model represents sewer pipes and equipment as a utility network. The provided information model is not intended to include every possible variation of pipes and equipment. Most organizations will extend the provided information model to represent how their sewer systems are constructed, and to integrate with other information systems.

The Sewer Utility Network Configuration will change as new capabilities are added to the utility network and best practices evolve. It is important to understand that you are not required to upgrade your implementation to stay in sync with changes to the Sewer Utility Network Configuration. Remember the Sewer Utility Network Configuration is a starting point and your implementation will branch away from it.

When considering whether to migrate your implementation to a newer version of the Sewer Utility Configuration, it is important to understand that migration may entail a significant amount of work and expense. As a matter of best practice, you should identify the benefits of migrating to a new version of the Sewer Utility Network Configuration and evaluate the benefits against the work and expense. Only if there is a significant positive benefit should you consider upgrading.

Version

Below are the release dates and version information for the sewer data model and the supported versions of ArcGIS Pro and the Utility Network Release.

Date Version Description
January 2019 2.0.1
  • ArcGIS Pro 2.3 and Utility Network Release 2.
June 2018 2.0
  • ArcGIS Pro 2.2 and Utility Network Release 2.

Configuration workflow

You can configure a utility network for sewer and begin using the network to support common workflows at your organization in four steps.

  1. Create and configure a utility network using the Utility Network Package Tools and Esri's asset package for sewer. Once the base model has been applied to a utility network, evaluate the gaps and extend your implementation. Sample data is provided.
  2. Post process and publish your utility network layer to Portal for ArcGIS. With the services based architecture that powers the ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension, the published utility network layer will be the service that your organization uses to manage, analyze, and work with the new utility network.
  3. Deploy focused solutions designed to address common workflows at your organization. Using the ArcGIS Solutions Deployment Tool, these maps and apps will automatically be configured to use your published utility network layer.
  4. Get maps and apps in the hands of your users. Share the maps and apps deployed with the appropriate members of your organization. Your organization can then use these maps and apps to streamline common workflows at your utility.
