Our gas pipe line feature class was created by in the past by tracing methods and we would like to improve the accuracy.  We have our designated valve point feature class GPS corrected to sub-foot accuracy and would like to shift the pipeline or snap it to these points.

We have explored "Spatial Adjustment" with ESRI tech support and found that the pipeline becomes distorted and valve points can be shifted unexpectedly.

Another recommendation we have had is the "Build Geometric Network" tool however we have not yet explored this.

We are looking for proper workflow suggestions from Gas Utility companies who have successfully dealt with this issue.

Thank you,
