The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utility Department (CMUD) has created an innovative easement clearing app to help maintain water and sewer line easements.
Thanks to the new app, planners can easily locate easements and their current clearance status. Workers are able to add information on their mobile devices, meaning CMUD’s staff can prioritize and plan clearing using the most up-to-date information available.
“It saves me an incredible amount of time because in the field I can mark access points, attach pics, or mark any other important easement features directly on the app on my phone,” said Angel Carter, an engineering assistant coordinating contractor clearing. “It’s a real asset to my job.”
