|Two Rivers Water Reclamation Authority|
Monmouth Beach, NJ
Birdsall Services Group (BSG) has been the Engineer-of-Record (EOR) for the Two Rivers Water Reclamation Authority since 2005. In this capacity, BSG is providing the Authority with on-call engineering design services, annual inspections of the collection and treatment systems, and preparation of studies and investigations.
The Authority has retained the services of the RJN Group to design and implement a central database system integrating customer billing, maintenance records, and design records keeping for its wastewater collection system. As the Authority’s Engineer-of-Record, BSG was asked to prepare data layers for the geographical information system (GIS) interfacing with the database. After reviewing the available construction records for the collection system, BSG, jointly with RJN, defined data structures for the manhole and line segment data, respectively. BSG then prepared a connectivity data table of the collection system. BSG developed a software package to automatically generate ArcMap compatible shapefiles from the data tables for each of the member towns in the service area. As part of the shapefile generation, BSG identified missing manholes and line segments. Approximate locations for missing elements were given to the Authority’s field personnel for field location and GPS survey. Information identified as missing has been added periodically and will continue until the data are considered to be essentially complete.
