CSA S250 Standard MAPPING OF UNDERGROUND UTILITY INFRASTRUCTURE Bob Gaspirc, OLS, CLS, OAEM Manager, Mapping Services – City of Toronto Chair, CSA S250 Technical Committee 2009 OGRA/ROMA Combined Conference 2009-02-24 Buried Treasure – Underground Utilities Workshop Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Fairmount Royal York Hotel, Tudor Room

Where is the “treasure” in underground utility mapping standards? Business Intelligence (noun) - a set of concepts and methods to improve business decision making by using fact-based support systems. “ Today we will demonstrate how CSA s250 will be used to support business intelligence Key Goal CSA s250 - Good records - better decisions

Business Intelligence (noun) - a set of concepts and methods to improve business decision making by using fact-based support systems. “

Today we will demonstrate how

CSA s250 will be used to support business intelligence

Key Goal

CSA s250 - Good records - better decisions

Key Goal – improve decision making You must: Be ready to produce utility “record” as evidence that an event, set of activities, or task occurred and was completed Have record containing relevant, factual, and timely data Be able to access and retrieve utility record Be able to to share, manipulate, analyze, distribute data Make and act on decisions using reliable and dependable utility map records

You must:

Be ready to produce utility “record” as evidence that an event, set of activities, or task occurred and was completed

Have record containing relevant, factual, and timely data

Be able to access and retrieve utility record

Be able to to share, manipulate, analyze, distribute data

Make and act on decisions using reliable and dependable utility map records

Evidence of an event, activity, task As-built drawings, plans Circulation drawings, mark ups Design drawing Permit drawings, sketches Approved design drawing used for purposes of construction Field notes, locator notes, inspector notes, Digital representations of above Supports and demonstrates the “legal test phases” to be met “the integrity of the recording system” and “ the reliability of the entry.”

As-built drawings, plans

Circulation drawings, mark ups

Design drawing

Permit drawings, sketches

Approved design drawing used for purposes of construction

Field notes, locator notes, inspector notes,

Digital representations of above

Supports and demonstrates the “legal test phases” to be met “the integrity of the recording system” and

“ the reliability of the entry.”

CSA s250 – Mapping of underground infrastructure Needs to be: referenced and used within infrastructure design, construction, operation policies, practices, and procedures “ these” documents are needed to: establish the integrity and authenticity of utility mapping records recorded in their document management systems, GIS, and other electronic records management system

Needs to be:

referenced and used within infrastructure design, construction, operation policies, practices, and procedures

“ these” documents are needed to:

establish the integrity and authenticity of utility mapping records recorded in their document management systems, GIS, and other electronic records management system

CSA s250: – Mapping of underground infrastructure Provides technology-neutral language “ … as per CSA s250” Codifies selected best practices, procedures, tables, or figures that are normal to rely on Applying the standard to an organization’s business will not eliminate the possibility of litigation, but it will make the production of electronic records easier and their acceptance in a legal proceeding more certain.

“ … as per CSA s250”

Codifies selected best practices, procedures, tables, or figures that are normal to rely on

Applying the standard to an organization’s business will not eliminate the possibility of litigation, but it will make the production of electronic records easier and their acceptance in a legal proceeding more certain.

Improved decision framework Acts, regulations, by-laws, codes Results of court actions/decisions, other legal proceeding Enables Framework for exchange, data sharing, data licensing; web-based distribution models, reseller model, value-added reseller model, no-fee and fee-based distribution models Business policies, best practice, procedures, and operational requirements STANDARDS ISO 15489 - records management CAN/CGSB-72.34, Electronic records as documentary evidence standards endorsed for the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) (DRM, metadata, web services etc) CSA s250 – Mapping of Underground Utility Infrastructure Technology neutral language Improves, enhances records management during design, construction, operation, retirement phase of plant

CSA s250 – Mapping of Underground Utility Infrastructure

Why a Mapping Standard? Good records lead to informed decisions Next logical step, building on best practices Better communication reduces infrastructure life-cycle challenges Promotes communication among utility infrastructure stakeholders

Good records lead to informed decisions

Next logical step, building on best practices

Better communication reduces infrastructure life-cycle challenges

Promotes communication among utility infrastructure stakeholders

Why a CSA based standard? Provides management framework for administering technical committee Acts a facilitator; provides neutral third party forum, process, and structure for developing a consensus standard Part of the National Standards System; accredited by the Standards Council of Canada

CSA’s Involvement in Civil Infrastructure More than 400 publications relate to civil infrastructure… Homes & Buildings Transportation structures Energy networks (electrical, petroleum, gas & alternative energy) Water, waste, & storm water management Industrial structures Communications structures Community, healthcare and recreational facilities

History and Background of Initiative No current mapping standard that addresses accuracy, process, and identification of underground plant Historically, high variability in the reliability, consistency & accuracy of mapping underground utilities The (Ontario and BC) Common Ground Alliance movement have introduced Mapping “Best Practices” for Damage Prevention Recent technological advancements allows for: Improved records capture Better records storage Enhanced access and sharing mechanisms Growing appetite to share utility mapping records

Recent technological advancements allows for:

Improved records capture

Better records storage

Enhanced access and sharing mechanisms

Growing appetite to share utility mapping records

Creation of a New CSA Technical Committee Technical Committee established consisting of subject matter experts, that also represent regional and end user interests. Mandate: The Committee shall be responsible for developing and maintaining standards related to mapping and recording of existing in-service underground utility infrastructure and related appurtenances below, at, or near grade and those that are either abandoned or that are reserved for future use.

Challenges & Observations Need to remind ourselves of the benefits of having a standard Need to maintain interest in the standard by committee members and all stakeholders Need to assess how the standard will be embraced and then sustained Once CSA S250 is published, stakeholders may: formally mandate implementation of all or part of CSA standard in regulatory/legislated framework modify internal processes and systems to meet or exceed the standard

Need to remind ourselves of the benefits of having a standard

Need to maintain interest in the standard by committee members and all stakeholders

Need to assess how the standard will be embraced and then sustained

Once CSA S250 is published, stakeholders may:

formally mandate implementation of all or part of CSA standard in regulatory/legislated framework

modify internal processes and systems to meet or exceed the standard

Improved reliability and accuracy in the location of underground utility infrastructure mapping records & supporting data Improved safety of company & contractor employees and the general public by decreasing utility hits/strikes Lower cost in the utility design life cycle by sharing accurate & complete utility records in a timely fashion amongst all users (municipalities, carriers, contractors, designers, consultants, locators…) Expected Outcomes
