LDA Engineering is providing Global Positioning System (GPS)/ Geographic Information System (GIS) services for Morristown Utilities System (MUS) in order to GPS locate approximately 12,000 water meters within the MUS water service area. The GPS services consist of electronically locating the water meters and providing MUS with a file compatible with their GIS mapping system. In order for LDA Engineering to efficiently locate the meters within the budgeted amount, LDA field work is being performed during periods when thick overhead foliage is not present on trees, as this is an issue with the GPS unit transmitting/ receiving a signal.
The water meters located in dense areas where foliage is not a factor are being located throughout the year to maintain the budget amount. LDA provided the GPS information to MUS to incorporate into their GIS mapping within the budget and schedule.Back to Projects
