Jesse Knight came down today and finished up the changes/corrections/additions in my map at RWD No. 2. He dropped me off at my house a little after 5:00 p.m., then went over to Brett's house to pour over the map for Cherokee County RWD 1, Crestline. He'll be with us tomorrow doing the same thing for No. 1 as he did for No. 2, today.
I can't say enough good about your mapping service. Instead of a having to deal with a bunch of ripped and torn, faded out pieces of paper and a few stained restaurant napkins, I now have all that information on one map in a single usable form. I have two copies of the map so I can haul one around in the truck to work with, and have a clean one for reference at the well house.
Jesse is very knowledgeable regarding GPS mapping and has a remarkable memory. As many districts as he has done, he not only remembered the problem areas in my district, he remembered exactly where the meters were located without the aid of the map. I'm impressed with him, but not only me, my wife appreciates him also. He's a fine young man and a good representative for KRWA. When you see how many middle and old aged people are in the water business today, it's a breath of fresh air to see someone as young and energetic as Jesse came on the scene. You certainly have the ability to seek out and hire the best personnel available.

On behalf of Greenwood RWD 1, I would like to extend my gratitude for the mapping assistance that Pete Koenig and KRWA have provided.
When the district was forced to join One Call we looked for a way to send them a map that would fulfill our requirements and reduce the number of locates our district would receive. Pete was so helpful in informing us that he could help set up a boundary file that "buffers" the waterlines in our district. We conducted a Crossloop session in which we were able to view his computer over an Internet connection and instruct him about where to draw the new buffer. This was an awesome technology experience! We also sent him maps with our lines drawn on them in the general area and Pete was able to define our boundary even more. We have refined the boundary file and Pete has sent it to Kansas One Call for use in their system. I am looking forward to the results. We couldn't have done this without Pete's help in this situation. Thank you for the wonderful service you provided us with our mapping needs.
