Firing a GP Service/Python Script

I will have a GEP service that when a certain incident ocurrs, I will be updating a series of point values in a feature service.
After this update has happened, I want to then trigger a GP Service OR a python script to run that will do a basic IDW interpolation upon the updated point values (borehole water depths).

What is the best way of triggering for either an ArcGIS Server GP service to fire OR (and more ideally) for a local python script to execute?
