Utilizing GIS for Master Planning of Lakes and Stormwater Maintenance

For this 10-year master plan, Daniel and the AMT team provided a GIS database approach to determine optimal stormwater maintenance facility locations and eroded stream valleys in need of restoration. These databases included (1) 400 culverts with descriptions; (2) a breakdown of watershed features over 40 different subbasins; (3) 100 individual homeowner concerns, broken down into five more specific subcategories; (4) lake maintenance features, such as dredging zones, water sampling points, and weather monitors. The databases were then rated against each other with user-selected variable weights attached, in order to rank the most efficient projects for the community in their 10-year plan.
