Improving Water Quality: Using Technology to Advance the Goals of Watershed Planning
In 2003 the Pennsylvania Environmental Council teamed with Buchart-Horn, Inc. to conduct and prepare a Watershed Conservation Plan (WCP) for the 510 square mile Conewago Creek Watershed located in Adams and York Counties, Pennsylvania. The project was funded in part by a grant received from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), Community Conservation Partnership Program, Rivers Conservation Program. Typically a WCP would be a large paper document similar to a County Comprehensive Plan or Zoning Ordinance. Unfortunately, these documents often do not get used as they should. Therefore, Buchart-Horn created an interactive GIS tool that provides planners and other stakeholders the ability to easily access the information within the WCP without having to search through the document. This GIS tool was designed to be used by people with little to no GIS experience. It contains easy to use tools, buttons and drop down lists to assist the user with accessing valuable watershed information.
