One of the cornerstones of MERI GIS' action plan is the collection and management of utility spatial datasets. Locations of stormwater outalls, catchbasins, manholes, and gravity main lines are acquired through physical asbuilt documents and digital AutoCAD drawings and site plan files. MERI digitizes these utilities and incorporates them into its Enterprise GIS. These datasets are pushed to MERI’s Municipal Map and DPW Dashboard web mapping applications for municipal and public access. The public can use these web maps to view the location and attribute information for stormwater utility spatial data within MERI's database. The mapping of utility features is an important resource to in-Distrct towns for stormwater pollution prevention and adherence to the main requirements of the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) program. MERI has presented its work in mapping these stormwater assets as part of NJDEP’s roll-out to communities, specifically to the Meadowlands towns, in making them aware of the preliminary Draft Renewal of the Tier A MS4 NJDEP Permit. The Tier A MS4 NJDEP Permit allows for the discharge of stormwater from MS4s owned or operated by Tier A towns in the State. The conditions of this permit were last renewed in 2009, expired on February 28, 2014, and continue in force pending completion of the renewal process (NJDEP).
