[ARCHIVED] County Launches Online Clean Water Mapping Tool

Clean Water Map

Interactive resource highlights local water quality improvement projects

Largo, MD – Want to know where the next water quality improvement projects are taking place in your community? Now you can easily locate that information with just a few online clicks. The Prince George’s County Department of the Environment (DoE) has launched a new online resource tool for residents and businesses to search for Construction Improvement Projects (CIP) associated with water quality. Called the Clean Water Map, the online map tool uses data from the County’s web-based GIS to provide a fully searchable and user-friendly resource for clean water information which is accessible 24 hours a day.

“This new online resource will become a useful and functional tool for residents and businesses by allowing them to view the water quality projects taking place in their communities,” says DoE Director Adam Ortiz. “Our plan is to grow the tool and add more data layers, so we invite the public to browse the site and provide us with their feedback.”

The new web-based tool benefits planners, designers and construction teams through GIS-based environmental, geographic, property types, utilities, impervious surface, infrastructure and other pertinent layers to assist with project development. Some of its unique features include: major watersheds and stream delineations, stream assessments, stormwater management and infrastructure facilities, project inventories (planning, design, construction, completed), project and address query tools and much more.
