Being the First One Off the Cliff

How the Costa Mesa Sanitary District uses tablets to bring efficiencies to the job.

Paul W. Taylor / December 18, 2017

We wrap up the year with Scott C. Carroll, the general manager of the Costa Mesa Sanitary District (CMSD) in California. He gives us his take on innovation ("If it's not broke, break it") and talks about his world of "2s" - 2 2-man crews, 2 trucks, 2 tablets and 220 miles of sewer lines. We also discuss how taking a chance on technology has helped his district find new and different ways of being efficient and improve employees' work in the field.
