Fetch Environmental Health (EH) helps regulators reduce the impact of septic systems to public health and water quality by using data to identify at risk systems and gain new insights.
Move beyond a permit transaction and start using your data to understand more about the health of septic system inventories in your community.
Reducing risk starts with better data
Develop complete digital site plans that are to scale and mapped on the property where they are actually located. Map septic tanks, drain fields, laterals, soil borings, measurement lines and more, and capture information about each feature such as tank size, drain field type, inspection date, status and more.
Build a complete digital inventory of septic systems by mapping paper site plans sitting in the filing cabinet and systems managed in a permitting database. Amalgam offers services to assist in mapping site plans and to provide guidance on options that improve location for existing records managed in a permitting database.
A digital, location based septic system inventory is the foundation that enables the use of data and location as a management tool. So any conversion project should consider plans to map or improve the location of septic systems.
Evaluating a site often involves reviewing multiple state and federal web mapping services, and local map layers to identify limiting conditions such as property boundaries, wetlands, wells and underground storage tanks.
FetchEH consolidates federal, state and local map layers and information on one map, including any site plans that have been mapped, so designers save time and see all of the site research data working together on a single map.
Access site plan maps and information in the field and conduct mapping workflows onsite. FetchEH works on desktops or mobile and offers an offline mode, so you can still access maps and tools in the field even without a data connection.
Developing location based septic system data enables regulators to move beyond simply permitting and record keeping, to using data to introduce workflow efficiencies, manage O&M programs, assess risk and gain new insights about the health of systems in their community. These management tools help regulators target funding and other resources to those systems that pose the greatest threat to public health and water quality.
FetchEH also helps agencies improve access to septic system site plans and information. Home owners, contractors, realtors and other regulators can use FetchEH to view site plans on any device, share maps and even print site plans or save them as a PDF. Improving access reduces counter, telephone and email traffic, while also helping home owners become more familiar with what is often a black box.
