Four Decades of STAWD History
STAWD, or the Southern Tagalog Association of Water Districts, is a network of water districts that was established in 1983 with the vision of achieving self-sufficiency and unity among its members. STAWD aims to promote camaraderie and fellowship among water districts in the region, as well as to share knowledge and experiences on water management and service delivery. Since then, the STAWD has grown to become one of the most active and influential water associations in the country.
The STAWD Convention is an annual event that aims to promote the development and sustainability of water districts in the Southern Tagalog Region. The theme of this year’s event is Synergy Towards Accelerated Action for Water, Life, and Environment. The convention will feature plenary sessions, technical presentations, exhibits, and networking opportunities for water professionals and stakeholders.
Leading Provider of GIS Solutions
One of the highlights of the convention is the exhibition of GeoNobel, the subsidiary of Nobel Systems, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for water utilities. GeoNobel will be at Booth 1 to showcase GeoViewer, its flagship product that offers a comprehensive and integrated platform for asset management and work orders for water districts.
GeoViewer is a web-based application that allows water districts to monitor, manage, and maintain their assets in real time. GeoViewer enables users to access data and maps from any device, anywhere, anytime. GeoViewer also automates workflows and streamlines operations, resulting in improved productivity and reduced costs.
GeoViewer has many features and benefits for water districts, such as:
- Asset inventory and mapping: GeoViewer allows users to create and update an accurate inventory of their assets, such as pipes, valves, hydrants, meters, pumps, tanks, etc. GeoViewer also provides interactive maps that display the location and status of each asset, as well as relevant information such as age, condition, maintenance history, etc.
- Work order management: GeoViewer enables users to create, assign, track, and complete work orders for various tasks, such as inspections, repairs, installations, replacements, etc. GeoViewer also allows users to attach photos, videos, documents, and notes to each work order for better documentation and communication.
- Leak detection and analysis: GeoViewer helps users to identify and locate leaks in their water distribution system using advanced algorithms and sensors. GeoViewer also provides tools for analyzing the impact and severity of leaks, as well as for prioritizing and planning leak repairs.
- Customer service and billing: GeoViewer facilitates customer service and billing by allowing users to view customer information, meter readings, consumption patterns, billing history, service requests, complaints, etc. GeoViewer also enables users to send notifications and alerts to customers via email or SMS.
- Reporting and analytics: GeoViewer generates reports and dashboards that provide users with insights and trends on their water district’s performance and efficiency. GeoViewer also supports data integration and export to various formats and platforms.
GeoNobel is excited to meet with the STAWD members and share its expertise and experience in water management solutions. GeoNobel believes that by leveraging geospatial technologies and cloud computing, water utilities can enhance their efficiency, reliability, and resilience in the face of increasing challenges and demands.
The Future of Water
Water is essential for life, and water districts play a vital role in ensuring that clean and safe water is available for everyone. However, managing water resources and infrastructure is not an easy task. It requires efficient planning, monitoring, maintenance, and reporting of various assets and work orders.
GeoNobel is looking forward to connecting with water leaders and potential partners and clients at the 38th STAWD Convention and sharing its expertise and experience in delivering innovative solutions for water and wastewater management, smart cities, and geospatial data analytics. GeoNobel believes that these solutions can help address the challenges and opportunities faced in the Philippines in achieving sustainable development goals.
