Serving more than 80,000 people in Goleta Valley, California, the Goleta Sanitary District is on a mission to promote public health and environmental safety. The District has made major investments in a long-range capital improvement plan that seeks to consolidate data formats and conduct essential replacement and rehab projects over ten years. The plan uses detailed criteria to correct structural and hydraulic defects for nearly 7,000 underground assets, minimizing risk of infrastructure failure throughout the collection system.

Since 2012, the pipe cleaning company Point Orange Sewer Cleaning GmbH has been offering drain, pipe & sewer cleaning service to its community of Bispingen, Germany. Their services include property drainage, clog removal, sewer cleaning, sewer milling, sewer location, sewer and pipe rehabilitation, and also CCTV inspection.
For the past two years, the company has been using WinCan software for sewer maintenance, and in cooperation with a Vivax Metrotech locator, the Point Orange team has been able to both expedite and streamline workflows.
Integrating software for utilities is just one way the City of Raleigh, North Carolina, is prioritizing routine infrastructure inspections and maintenance activities. The stormwater division alone oversees 35,500 storm drains and 609 miles of pipes and culverts across the city, working to monitor and protect waterways and residential areas. As demand for maintenance increases, connected, cloud-driven technology helps the city effectively manage their assets.
When your sewer team works closely with other municipal departments, it’s essential to have clear pathways from your inspection database to your asset database. WinCan’s integration with Cartegraph’s municipal asset management platform enables wastewater utilities to work closely with broader infrastructure teams to ensure that the city’s data is accurate, up-to-date and ready for analysis. Designed to help communities sync their sewer data and streamline their asset management workflows, Cartegraph is a natural companion for WinCan’s sewer inspection management capabilities. Our integration delivers a fast, complete data transfer that supports more flexible workflows and helps you get the most out of both solutions.
Good data is ready for analysis when you are. Sewers are essential infrastructure, and prompt, actionable inspection results help keep our communities safe, healthy and clean. In today’s world, that means seamless, bidirectional data transfer that keeps databases updated in real time, with results rippling throughout the system to enable data-driven maintenance decisions.
WinCan recently received the Solution Alignment Award at the 2022 Esri Infrastructure Management and GIS (IMGIS) Conference held in Palm Springs, California. The award was presented to WinCan for demonstrating innovative and creative ways to solve complex problems with Esri’s ArcGIS software.
Sewer inspection software doesn’t exist in a void: It is only as valuable as the data you collect – and the equipment it integrates with. Smart system operators seek out flexible software that lets them pick the right equipment for the job, regardless of manufacturer.
With the latest update to Version 12, WinCan VX proves yet again to be the most innovative and well-supported sewer inspection software on the market. From intuitive adjustments in UI to top-level integration pathways, V12 brings added convenience and streamlined functionality to core sewer inspection workflows in WinCan.
GIS queries allow sewer inspection teams to quickly review specific data and better understand the location and condition of a pipe section or sewer system. They are user-initiated requests to translate data points into actionable information.
Located at the confluence of three watersheds and surrounded by two salmon-bearing rivers, Springfield, Oregon, promotes good wastewater practices. The city has an initiative that addresses the fact that fats, oils, and grease (FOG) have no place in the sewers. This is one of many efforts the city has in place to keep its wastewater system clean and operating smoothly. With the help of WinCan VX integrated with Esri's ArcGIS Online, the city is enhancing efforts to ensure that main lines are healthy and wastewater is flowing properly.
With 225 miles of wastewater lines, varying from 6" to 60" in diameter, Springfield's wastewater inspection team needs technical solutions that encompass both maintenance and mapping. Chris Zeitner, Springfield's geographic information system (GIS) database administrator, says WinCan and Esri technologies have the integrated functionality needed to automate workflows between inspection and analysis, and to streamline the decision-support process.
