Storm system inspection data is stored in GBA Storm Master's field inspection modules. Using the field form developed by GBA to ensure that data entered by different crews over different periods of time is consistent, inspections can be quickly and accurately completed.
Storm system inspection data is stored in
GBA Storm Master's field inspection modules. Using the field form
developed by GBA to ensure that data entered by different crews over different
periods of time is consistent, inspections can be quickly and accurately
completed. Information collected includes the type, condition, location, and
other key information for structures, conduits, and storage basins. Inspection
and inventory data provide key information required to meet federal National
Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) storm water permitting
conditions. Using the inspection data, the area, outfall, land use, and
impervious area can quickly be determined.
and GBA Work Master
programs are integrated in two ways.
First, a work order is created for a specific storm system item (or group of
like items). Pertinent information for the item is automatically brought into
the work order record from the appropriate inventory module. For a conduit, this
information includes upstream and downstream structure numbers, length, slope,
size, liner, and material. Second, any updates to the item's inventory
information determined to be necessary from observations/modifications made
during completion of the work can be automatically made directly from the work
Horizontal coordinate data for each storm water system item,
used by the GBA GIS Master program to define the system's mapping, are
stored in the inventory modules of the GBA Storm Master program. These
system items, along with their pertinent inventory information, can then be
viewed graphically through GBA GIS Master at their defined locations.
Inspection and analyses results from GBA Storm Master can also be
viewed graphically through GBA GIS Master.
The integration of
GBA Storm Master with GBA GIS Master enhances the user's ability
to detect trends in system deterioration, locate possible capacity bottlenecks,
or map inspection routes for work crews. The combination of these two programs
provides the foundation of a well-managed system.
