Berkeley Lake developing stormwater geodatabase

Berkeley Lake’s current stormwater management program seeks to improve its efficiency by integrating multiple data sources with mapping ability. Doing so will improve the accuracy of inspections and track the maintenance activities reported to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division. Combining the data will also help to ensure the city meets the mandated requirements of being a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System.

In an effort to merge multiple databases and sources and be able to view progress and status in a geographic context, the city will contract with Keck & Wood Inc. to provide design and development of a geodatabase that inventories and tracks all the city’s inspections and improvements into one database and to make it compatible with industry-standard Geographic Information Systems. The City Council recently approved a proposal for the work not to exceed $4,500.
