Conduits, Manholes, and Tracing

Discussion created by Wolseley on Sep 27, 2012
I have a duct bank with a 2x6 array of 1" PVC conduits. It follows thru 3 Electrical Manholes which are access points for the duct bank.

How do you represent conduits in these situations when they all intersect at manholes? my goal to is create a geometric network to allow for tracing from the source to the end of the conduit. Right now, I show each conduit as parallel lines all intersecting at each manhole (which is a point feature class), then coming out of each manhole as parallel lines. What are your thoughts in these situations?
