The city of Norfolk is a major urban center in the Hampton Roads, southeast Virginia. Norfolk's storm water system consists of 349 miles of pipes, 137 miles of ditches, 13 storm water ponds, and 10 storm water pump stations. Performing inventory updates, assessing pipes and structures, and setting priorities for major maintenance and improvement initiatives along with reconciling and verifying current GIS mapping and database were the main project goals. The challenge was how to develop systems and protocols in which the Capital Improvement Projects (C.I.P.) process becomes a proactive tool rather than a reactive process. The project includes a study of the modeling systems available to determine which one better fits city needs. Data interchange, intermediate programs, program interfaces, and program integration were deeply discussed through out the projects.
