The Sewer Utility Network Foundation 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 Foundation 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 Foundation. Remember the Sewer Utility Network Foundation 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When considering whether to migrate your implementation to a newer version of the Sewer Utility Foundation, it is important to understand that migration may entail a significant amount of work and expense.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 Foundation and evaluate the benefits against the work and expense. Only if there is a significant positive benefit should you consider upgrading.
Below are the release dates and version information for the sewer data model and its ArcGIS platform compatibility.
You can configure a utility network for sewer and begin using the network to support common workflows at your organization in four steps.
