Duluth North Shore Sanitary District
Starting a GIS Asset Management System
May,2018
by Erik Cooper
The D/NSSD along the shore in our Township will be starting to create an asset management system (GIS) over the coming months. This will be used to assist in long-term operations within the D/NSSD system and provide better mapping of the system infrastructure. In the coming month, staff from MSA Professional Services will be collecting GPS locations of all grinder basins and curb stops within the District as well as additional operations information over the summer. This will also help the Operations Staff expedite the process during callouts or emergency events.
This data collection effort is non-invasive, though you may see staff on your property to collect information and perhaps a survey stake, utility flag or painted mark to assist in the data collection effort. Please do not disturb these markers. Any stakes or flags are meant to speed the process and make it more cost-effective for the users. If you have any questions, please contact a D/NSSD Board member, attend a monthly Board meeting or contact PeopleService at 218-590-5911.
This study is being prepared by our D/NSSD using Federal funds under award #NA17NOS4190062 from the amended Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972, administered by the Office for Coastal Management,
NOAA, U.S. Dept. of Commerce provided to MNDNR for the MN Lake Superior Coastal Program. The statements, findings, conclusion and
recommendations are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of NOAA’s Office of Coastal Manage, the U.S Dept. of Commerce, or the MN DNR.
