Is there a white paper, web source, or book that describes a water utility from the perspective of someone who is experienced in GIS but not a water utility.  Everything I have found is more from the perspective of someone who knows a water utility but not GIS.

Thanks for the reply Howard. Those are great, I had not come across them in my searching.

I am also interested in definitions of the various components, what they do, and how they fit into the model.  For example, I didn't know that sampling stations don't need to be connected to the water distribution network, they can be free floating and are more for reporting.  At least that's how I understand it.

The data dictionary from the Local Government Information Model might help -

Although important to point out that you aren't required to use the Local Government Information model if you are deploying any the ArcGIS for Water Utilities configurations.
