Cloud Hosted Waste Water Pollution Management System

Windsor was awarded the contract to implement the Georgia Waste Water Pollution Control System known as GAPDES in a cloud environment. WIndsor and Gegorgia Environmental Protection Division chose Amazon EC2 as the hosting environment in which to house the application.

GAPDES manages all information about the EPD’s National Pollutant Elimination System (NPDES) permit, compliance, and enforcement program implementations, including:

  • Permit applications
  • Permits
  • Inspections
  • Enforcement actions
  • Spills tracking

GAPDES is a fully integrated information system that consolidates existing separate EPD applications into a single data repository and provides a powerful and secure data collection, management and access interface for all program information. This Internet- based, cloud-hosted application was developed using Microsoft’s .NET Framework and MySQL, but it was architected for compatibility with other database platforms.

EPD permitting staff uses GAPDES to manage the complex NPDES permit and water quality certification application process, ensuring that all required information is captured. Permit documents are automatically generated by the system, saving valuable time while promoting consistency and accuracy within the branch. Facilities and outfalls can be mapped using dedicated geospatial viewers, providing important context such as proximity to impaired waterbodies.

EPD compliance staff uses the system to schedule and record inspections, as well as generate post-inspection reports. GAPDES also provides robust functions to log single-event and permit violations and manage enforcement actions. Spills can be tracked in the system, and these can be integrated with the existing permits and facilities recorded by permitting staff. Spills can also be plotted on a map, showing their relationship to existing facilities, outfalls, and impaired waterbodies.
