Project: GIS Septic Field Data and Soil Erosion (GIS-44)
Project #: GIS-44
Lead Agency: Westland
Status: Complete
Project Description:The project linked and coordinated data sets in the GIS which allows for an effective and accurate method of monitoring compliance with the General Permit. Parcels lacking sewer connections were defined and confirmed with the County Health Department and the City Billing records.
Project/Report Summary :This report, completed in 2000, summarizes the steps taken by Westland to complete a GIS dataset that is comprised of the entire city storm pipe system. Further, this report illustrates steps taken to rectify errors that occurred in an earlier version of the deliverable. Field verification activities were conducted to gather correct information on storm system features. Characteristics such as component length, width, and location were noted by field personnel and implemented in the new GIS dataset. It was noted that there were differences in GIS and source map information. It was recommended that continued field verification be completed to rectify these discrepancies.
