Our UtiliSafe™ suite of solutions puts critical data at your fingertips for planning, operations and regulatory compliance. These solutions are based on a unique, comprehensive combination of processes, GIS platforms and rigorous QA/QC requirements that provide high-confidence, verifiable results.

• Incorporates utility data to a GIS interface
• Near realtime collection and update of field operations
• Compatible with multiple GIS platforms (ESRI, GE Smallworld, and others)
• Cross Bore risk assessment
• Leak Survey compliance status and asset location
• Provides Risk Analysis models from multiple sources to enhance the decision making process
• Improved short and long term budget planning
• Mobile/web based access to asset data
• Zoom to details and asset photos from the office or mobile tablets and phones

Hydromax USA has developed an entirely digital leak survey
program utilizing a spatial database for all field-collected data.
All data collected in the field is entered onto a tablet that includes
a high-accuracy GPS point, which in turn is transmitted directly
to an enterprise Geodatabase.

• All data is geo-referenced
• GPS breadcrumbs include gas meter readings
• Gas assets photos are geo-referenced
• Project GIS mapping validates all field work

Cross-bores are defined as an intersection of an existing
underground utility or underground structure by a second utility
resulting in direct contact between the transactions of the utilities
that compromises the integrity of either utility or underground

Cross-Bore Inspection helps utilities:
• Reduce risk of property damage, injuries or loss of life
• Prevent catastrophic explosions
• Prevent or identify compromises of underground utilities and structures
• Provides high confidence of system integrity through GIS data
• Visually assess compromised pipe with 100% video review


Preventing Damage

UtilAlert – an innovative Notification System – is a “plug & play” excavator-mounted device, able to:

  • Discern the movement of digging activities through on-board multiple axis inertial measurement units
  • Capture the GPS location of the excavator
  • Transmit the information to a real-time GIS-enabled database through the cellular network.

Software evaluates the excavator location and digging activity with mapping of any connected utility and 811 dig ticket boundaries. When the software identifies a high-risk utility at the location using GIS mapping, the device alerts the excavator operator directly and both contractor and utility damage prevention teams through mobile and desktop apps. All parties can act to prevent damage before it occurs.

How Our GasSafe® Data Integration Benefits Utilities:

  • Asset details are available across multiple departments for project design, project scheduling and operations control.
  • Better budgeting by combining asset characteristics from multiple department sources of “SILO” data.
  • GIS reference for fast, accurate consolidation of data from the GIS visual interface.
  • Integration with SAP and other data structures.
  • Database structure is maintained to search and report in traditional queries and reports.
  • Regulatory compliance is easily reported with fast drill down to data and graphics for QA/QC and auditor verification.
  • GIS databases in the future can provide mapping for 811 “Call Before You Dig” requests versus the traditional on site painting of the utility location.
