Success with Uinta: West Cedar Creek Municipal Utility District’s experience with Juniper’s customizable mapping software

West Cedar Creek Municipal Utility District was established in 1975. The municipality in Tool, Texas, is about 45 minutes outside of Dallas. Currently, they serve approximately 35,000 people within a 150 square mile service area with over 4,000 sewer connections and 8,000+ water meters. It takes an entire team to ensure that the water is safe and of the highest quality for this community.

To map, locate, and track each of these pipes for sewer and water, the municipality originally did so with pen and paper. Tony Ciardo, General Manager of West Cedar Creek Municipal Utility District, shared why they upgraded from pen and paper to digital mapping.

“A few years ago, we started directional drilling to put pipes in the ground. We saw a need to map these pipes since there were no ditches to indicate where a pipe had been placed. We considered hiring a surveyor to come out and survey points, but that would have been too costly. It wasn’t an affordable option for us.

“Uinta came to the rescue as an affordable option for us to map the water or sewer line during installation. The software has been really effective in locating and keeping track of our existing utilities. We use it to map any of the pipes that need repair, are new or old, and our 8,000+ water meters. Uinta has helped us keep track of these lines in a timely and organized fashion,” Ciardo said.

“It’s about time somebody has come up with software that doesn’t take a rocket scientist to use,” Ciardo said. “Uinta is a cut-and-dry software. I can easily build maps and record data within a couple of inches of the pipes. I’m planning on training additional team members to use Uinta.”
