Flooded with Stormwater Assets:
How One Local Government Took Back Control
of an Aging Infrastructure


Managing aging infrastructure assets requires a constant balancing act between prioritizing preventive maintenance efforts, scheduling urgently needed repairs and planning new investments. For Fort Worth, Texas, that meant finding a better way to track and maintain over 135,000 stormwater assets, and manage an estimated backlog of $1 billion in capital and maintenance drainage projects.

By integrating GIS and asset management, the City was able to reduce paperwork by 90%, save three to six months of temporary work each year and increase staff productivity by one hour each day.

The discussion covers how Fort Worth can now:

  • Track work against actual assets vs. an address
  • Better plan work schedules and easily respond to citizen calls
  • Select assets, create work orders and distribute work based on geographic locations
  • Access work orders and maps from the field
  • Improve costing by better identifying the amount, type and location of work and appreciate assets over time
