Utilities & Asset Management

The province of Ontario has been undergoing a challenging search for new energy and water sources to meet community energy and water/wastewater needs while trying maintain existing infrastructure. Compounding this has been the changing ownership of utility companies through mergers and acquisitions. Increasing government regulations on these utilities to promote a cleaner environment, have also been a challenge.  Come and see how the Geospatial community has risen to meet these challenges.

BeSpatial / urisa ontario's Western Region is excited to host a one day session focused on using Geospatial tools and technique to manage Utilities and other municipal Assets. All members are welcome.

Date: October 29, 2019

Time: 9am- 3pm
