MWRD has global positioning units (GPS) to map sewer systems
GIS Analyst Chris Poshek uses a new GPS unit in Calumet Park to capture infrastructure data for mapping.
The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) is pleased to offer global positioning units (GPS) to provide sewer system owners resources to begin mapping their sewer systems in GIS or improve their existing sewer system map. In return, sewer system owners will provide MWRD with their sanitary, storm, and combined sewer data. To obtain GPS equipment and related software at no cost, sewer system owners must enter into an Intergovernmental Agreement with MWRD.
To participate in the program, please submit a letter of intent with all supporting documentation to:
Catherine A. O’Connor Director of Engineering Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago 100 East Erie Street Chicago, Illinois 60611
