Water Lateral

Everything you need to efficiently inventory, inspect, and track history for every inch of lateral pipe in your water network can be found in the Water Lateral tool. Combine it with our other Water solutions and get full visibility of every network component. 


  • Location Centric: Locate the lateral and place it on your map. Add notes and photos to make it easy for crews to find the lateral in the future.
  • Guided Inspections: Populate the ordered fields, attach notes, photos, and video, and schedule necessary follow-up tasks on the spot.
  • Detailed Records: Access an ongoing account of inspections, maintenance, events, and OCI for each lateral segment in your inventory. Use that data to forecast service life, budget for repairs and replacements, and enhance your Emergency Response Plan (ERP).
  • Linkable Assets: Link lateral records to those of the mains, backflows, and valves they connect to.
  • Risk & Business Risk Exposure (BRE): These scores help you prioritize work and allocate your budget to address higher risk assets. The risk score is a number from 1 to 25 and is based on an asset's Probability of Failure and its Consequence of Failure. Calculating Risk is available for all asset types and Equipment.
