Bossier City Sewer Collection System MH Survey

As part of preparation of Sewer System Master Plan, Manchac surveyed over 600 manholes using our Trimble GPS 6000 series unit. The Trimble GeoExplorer 6000 Series GPS unit provides centimeter accuracy for data collection. For utility companies, municipalities, environmental management agencies, and many other organizations, timely accurate GIS field data is paramount to good decision making. The Trimble GeoExplorer 6000 series handheld is the best high accuracy hardware platform for any organization needing to map information precisely.

Using our GeoExplorer 6000 series handheld and associated software Manchac can provide many services:

  • Utilities: Underground asset mapping and inspection, water network modelling, as-built mapping of lines/cable installations, and incident/outage reporting.
  • Local government: High-density urban asset mapping, underground asset relocation, municipal asset inventory and inspection.
  • Environmental management: Weed management, water debris management, pollution mapping, environmental incident mapping, sample gathering, agricultural subsidy determination.

The GeoExplorer 6000 series is the ideal handheld for any industry requiring a mobile data collection and asset management solution.

City of Lake Charles Wastewater System Mapping Program

Manchac was retained by the City of Lake Charles to create GIS maps of the entire wastewater collection system.  This included entering all paper files into GIS then finding verification of the data.
