Austin Council to speak at NC One Water Conference 2023
Austin Council will be presenting “Lights, Camera, Action: How to get the most out of your CCTV Data” at the NC One Water Conference 2023 on Monday, October 30, at 10:40 AM.
The purpose of this presentation is to give insight to CCTV data and how it can benefit organizations much further than it currently is. Topics to be discussed will include CCTV advancements, data format standardizations, and integrations with other software.
Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) inspections of sewers have long been regarded as the best form of data when determining the condition assessment of a given sewer line. This raw data may even serve as a replacement for as-built drawings for many municipalities, which do not have records from when their earliest sewers were installed.
Historically, CCTV inspections have been stored on VHS tapes, CDs, or USB flash drives, where they sit on a shelf to be referenced once or twice until they become outdated and the infrastructure needs to be re-inspected.
With today’s innovations, we can utilize a variety of applications to analyze, organize, host, and illustrate CCTV data in ways that can increase the quality of asset management and collaboration across an organization’s stakeholders, while decreasing the cost of repetitive data collection.
Austin Council is a Project Coordinator in WithersRavenel’s Utilities practice. His work includes water distribution system and wastewater collection system design and rehabilitation. Because this work is frequently supported by federal and state grant funding, he is particularly interested in ways to reduce data collection and visualization costs to enable additional critical projects to be completed with municipal budgets.
