WCA was awarded a contract through the VT Department of Environmental Conservation (VT DEC) Ecosystem Restoration Program to conduct field-based mapping of Bennington’s stormsewer infrastructure.
Watershed Consulting Associates (WCA) digitized the Crystal Springs water system for the owner.
WCA performed an intensive desktop and field analysis of the St. Albans Town and City stormwater management systems to evaluate contributing drainage to surface, stormwater, and combined sewer systems, and to develop a GIS database of this information.
