The City of Lancaster has received additional funding from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to begin detailed mapping of the City’s stormwater infrastructure. Section 22 of the Water Resources Development Act, as amended, authorizes the U.S. Army Corps to provide planning assistance to local governments in support of planning efforts for development and conservation of water and related land resources, such as mapping of storm sewer systems (e.g., inlets, grates, pipes, endwalls, swales, etc.).
Beginning tomorrow, September 7, 2016, survey teams from the U.S. Army Corps will continue collecting data on the City’s storm sewer systems. These teams will be collecting data over the next few weeks as they complete the first phase of a multi-year effort to map all of the City’s stormwater infrastructure. This work, started earlier this year, will continue to allow the City to more effectively manage its stormwater infrastructure and comply with Clean Water Act regulations.
