MACTEC Releases WaterTool Software

Software helps Department of Defense installations maintain compliance with Safe Drinking Water Act

MACTEC Engineering & Consulting recently introduced WaterTool, management and analysis software that enables U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) installations to manage backflow prevention and cross-connection control programs. Bruce C. Coles, chairman of MACTEC, Inc., the holding company, made the announcement.

“WaterTool is easy to use, free to DOD users and is helping more than 50 DOD installations nationwide comply with the Safe Drinking Water Act,” said MACTEC Vice President and Research Triangle Park Office Manager Greg M. Pagett, P.E. “It’s paperless, too—users can input data using a PDA or pocket PC and synchronize with a desktop or server-housed database.”

WaterTool is also preloaded with all required U.S. Air Force reports (other reports are easily developed). The program is also preloaded with data so surveys and testing activities are simply an update of existing data—there’s no need to reenter the same data from paper forms.

“This greatly simplifies initial data setup as well as future updates and can save both time and money,” Pagett added.
