Hi Desert Water Management District GIS Web Portal

In order to better support the Districts Septic to Sewer conversion project, a single GIS web portal comprised of a public facing module and a restricted project tracking module was developed. The public facing module allows users to input construction notifications. Users also have the ability to search for properties with open/closed issues by issue type and project area. Additional functionality allowed for tracking assessment district information, tracking conversion access approvals for properties, and tracking mailings if responses are requested. The project tracking module tracks project progress and view issues submitted by property owners. This module is password restricted and only accessible by pre-approved users. Users have the ability to view and input property details. Details of issues submitted by property owners are viewable and users are able to provide comments, describe the corrective action, the status of the action, open or close issues and request that the property owner to confirm that the issue has been resolved.
