Groundwater accounts for 98% of the earth’s drinking water supply. Fifty percent of the US population relies on groundwater for daily drinking water and 37% of the agriculture in the United States depends on groundwater. Failure to perform daily inspections on your community’s wells and groundwater can result in the overtreatment or under treatment of your drinking water. And, if groundwater is not treated appropriately, waterborne germs such as, Cryptosporidium, E. coli, Hepatitis A, Giardia, and other pathogens can make your community sick. Managing this program with spreadsheets (or knowledge that is only in one senior team member’s head) increases your risk of a public health outbreak.
As a Water Manager, you understand the important role Well and Groundwater Inspections play in your overall water program. However, you may be faced with common challenges such as how to:
- Reduce the time it takes to manage field service personnel and contractors and assigning work orders
- Ensure compliance with state and EPA standards
- Ease the burden of completing and retrieving paper-based work orders and manually generating reports
You can increase the success, safety and compliance of your well and groundwater inspection program by using industry best practices and a proven operations management solution. In fact, the right operations management solution can save you time AND money.
The most efficient well and groundwater programs start with a sound plan for frequency and scheduling. A robust operations management solution, such as Utility Cloud, can simplify the management of this program.
