The Water Crossing Dashboard displays your complete crossing inventory in pre-set categories for easy reference and organization.
Each crossing is also assigned a priority score based on its Status, Substance, Material, H2S Content, Age and the size of the impacted water body, allowing you to determine which crossings require the most immediate attention as you build out your year-over-year inspection plans.

Crossings are visually plotted on thet map and tagged with their category and priority so you can easiliy identify the highest priority crossings.
With the click of a bbutton, you can assign a Depth of Cover or Visual Inspection and instantly generate the inspection forms with key pipeline attributes already populated.
