AI applied to water digital desktops provide a risk assessment for every pipe segment of the entire water distribution system with the ability to monetize and map the risk by location. AI applied to wastewater condition assessment services using a computer vision technology made possible by parallel processing in the cloud along with a million of AI training images, can automatically identify conditions in CCTV and Digital Side Scan (DSS) inspection data. A cloud platform for inspection data management, a NASSCO-certified software for PACP (sewer mainlines) and LACP (sewer laterals), can be leveraged by sewer utilities, services contractors, and consulting engineers to lower their inspection costs, accelerate workflows and processes, and utilize higher quality data to drive strategic asset planning.
