Recent studies show that thousands of miles of underground pipes that move water from treatment plants to taps are leaking: anywhere from 13-30%. At the same time, wastewater and stormwater systems are rapidly aging, allowing pollutants to flow into rivers, lakes and oceans. Learn how various organizations are using GIS to depict threats and hazards using map services and other technologies that incorporate analysis tools into their design.
