US town to map water routes

SHARE

US: Engineers in New Oxford will map all the storm sewers and drainage fields with a geographic information system. The exercise is aimed at understanding the size and location of all storm sewers and drains.

The exercise will help in identifying areas where storm water enters into a creek, stream or another municipality. It will also help in identifying the route of storm sewer and drain water, which will be helpful in controlling contamination caused by storm sewer. The mapping project will be paid for with money already earmarked for such projects.
