InfoWater Pro UDF provides the ability to automatically associate fire hydrants to the closest pipeline. Fire hydrants are normally connected to distribution pipes that are typically 16-inch diameter or less. Therefore, it is important to have the ability to exclude larger diameter pipes from being considered as candidates for auto-association. InfoWater Pro UDF provides the user with considerable flexibility in auto-associating hydrants to pipes. The user can place the appropriate diameter pipes in a Domain for consideration in the auto-association determination.
