The Town of Bruderheim wants to update their map of underground utilities.
Council gave administration the go-ahead to apply for a grant from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities' Asset Management Program.
The money would go towards partnering with Strathcona County to conduct a Utility Infrastructure Assessment, mapping out and analyzing the condition of the utility network.
"A lot of places are older and they may not have marked up drawings and so the location of things aren't that exact," said mayor Karl Hauch.
It would also help develop a five-year capital plan to repair and upgrade parts of the network, as well as plan ahead for future utility needs.
"With the (Geographic Information System or GIS) technology, they can determine exactly where the underground infrastructure is so going forward in the future, it's safer and more efficient for the town when repairs need to happen."
The town already has an idea of the state of the underground infrastructure in the older parts of town from a camera survey done a few years ago.
Bruderheim has identified some issues and are putting money away for repairs.
