West Norriton Township, PA: Stormwater In Your Backyard
CEDARVILLE had a story to tell: Stormwater Management for a local Township.
How would we talk with the residents about a topic as dull as stormwater? Could we create something that changes people’s behavior about pollution related to stormwater?
Our team helps boroughs, cities, townships, colleges, and our military manage and report on stormwater. These stormwater management programs are required by federal law and state regulations. An important part of this program requires educational materials to promote awareness to the residents.
Story Maps are an online tool that use geography and maps to tell a story about people, places, and things. They use text, images, and other content to create an interactive visual.
Our GIS experts decided to use this new technology to create a user-friendly online educational tool that was available to everyone. This tool would provide information about local stormwater impact, and the best ways to help reduce pollutants entering streams.
