The Collaborative Watershed Mapping Tool is a product of the Lancaster Clean Water Partners Watershed Action Team. The mapping layers provide spatial information and landscape context to support planning efforts of restoration and conservation professionals in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Data in the tool has been summarized by a small hydrologic unit called a “catchment” to easily identify areas with the greatest opportunity for restoration.
This tool was created for the Lancaster Clean Water Partners by Chesapeake Conservancy. The layers within the Data Viewer provide spatial information and landscape context to support planning efforts of restoration and conservation professionals in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. To protect the privacy of the Lancaster County community, parcel information is only accessible through a password-protected version of this tool. Please attend a future meeting of the Watershed Action Team to learn more about gaining access to parcel data. Information about the next meeting can be found here: http://lancastercleanwaterpartners.com/action-teams-2/
Reminder: Results should be ground-truthed using local knowledge through stakeholder and landowner participation, as the data is not intended to provide site-specific engineering/project design. Chesapeake Conservancy and Lancaster Clean Water Partners do not guarantee the accuracy of suggested practice locations. Local knowledge and planning expertise is required to apply the datasets in an appropriate manner and to ensure restoration projects will result in significant water quality benefits on-the-ground.
