HSWA Using GPS To Map Sharpsburg

In anticipation of assuming maintenance and operation of Sharpsburg Borough’s water distribution system on July 1st, HSWA is using Global Positioning Surveying (GPS) equipment to field locate the water valves and hydrants in the Borough.

Once the relevant features are surveyed in with the unit, we’ll take the data and flip it into our existing Geographic Information System (GIS) that we use for mapping and database storage of our system’s information.
