Information about water is fundamental to national and local economic well-being, protection of life and property, and effective management of our water resources. ArcGIS is a modern spatial system that provides you with solutions that meet your need to monitor and assess conditions, perform research, and deliver information. ArcGIS provides scientific information to water resource managers, planners, and stakeholders and allows the community to engage, collaborate, and share with easy-to-use maps and apps.


Engaging Stakeholders in Prince George's County

Multiple agencies in Prince George's County work together to ensure stormwater management compliance as well as plan and execute projects to improve watershed health in the county. A centralized geodatabase eliminated the need to reconcile data between agencies, consultants, and the municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) report. This has resulted in data-driven decisions that meet regulatory compliance, achieve cost effectiveness, and support community progress.
