Data Analysis: Geospatial, Temporal, Historical and more

The Organization: Consolidated Mutual Water Co. (CMWC)

 CMWC, since 1926, CMWC has been providing water to the Western Denver Suburbans, most of Jefferson County (JeffCo), the 4th most populous Colorado county. The organization manages water in the same watershed which Coors draws from. CMWC manages multiple reservoirs deep into the Rocky Mountains and in JeffCo. The network includes a complicated series of ditches off Clear Creek and other sources.

The Service is presently being provided to an estimated population of 85,000 within a 26 square mile service area in Lakewood, Wheat Ridge, and eastern Jefferson County through a 325 mile pipeline network. CMWC, owned by its water users, is a leader in innovation. It is also one of the first to employ pipe-bursting infrastructure replacement greatly reducing the costs and time to replace pipes. CMWC is always looking forward which is especially critical in a watershed that has a long history of drought management, large population shifts, and economic and government change.

The Problem and Solution: Provide project-based data analysis services

CMWC needed analysis to support government new policy considerations. Xentity has deep experience in culling, sourcing, mining, and analyzing historical data sources – whether geospatial, tabular, or unstructured. Xentity also helped rapidly discover various types of sources, over various periods. This includes aerial, satellite, data reports, networked vector data, hydrography, water use data, publications, GIS and non-GIS data. Using GIS, ETL and RBMS toolsets, Xentity merged these previously complicated disparate datasets into an integrated, and seamless where applicable mosaic of imagery and metadata to make for clean analysis. Furthermore, Xentity employed documented methods of requested analysis to produce a simple summarized output supported by detailed work products.

The Outcomes: Analysis solution used as basis for interim and ongoing reports.

Analysis has been received very well by CMWC leadership, engineering, and legal. Xentity is performing a second phase across multiple decades crossing imagery, parcels, census, historical maps, and other data. This supports the end analysis results to be as clear, complete, and accurate as possible.
