PRESENTATION: ArcGIS for MS4 Stormwater Mapping: NHDOT Approach
AUTHORS: Stephanie Pelletier, VHB & Dale Abbott* GISP – VHB

ABSTRACT: The Environmental Protection Agency released a new MS4 Stormwater General Permit for New Hampshire that became effective on July 1, 2018. The General Permit requires the DOT to develop updated maps of their stormwater system and related outfalls.  A key new requirement includes linking stormwater outfalls with the water quality impairments listed on the State?s 303 (d) list (impaired waters). VHB has been assisting the NH Department of Transportation in meeting the MS4 General Permit requirements. Specifically, VHB has developed a geodatabase of all NHDOT Operated outfalls with the NH MS4 area. In addition to compiling the geodatabase, VHB is leveraging Collector for ArcGIS to support field investigations, performing spatial analysis in ArcPro to estimate roadway drainage and combine outfalls with impaired waters data. Additionally, VHB is utilizing Operations Dashboard to track outfall inspections and business intelligence on various outfalls statistics such as receiving waters and water quality impairment.

PRESENTATION: Comparing call data and drive time areas to confirm location efficiency & Emergency response coverage
AUTHORS: Will Schoefmann, City of Keene, NH

ABSTRACT: The City of Keene NH owns a second Fire Station in a West Keene neighborhood. The property was acquired from the State/Army National Guard a year ago and the City is considering a number of options with regards to the property including: Renovations, Demolition and Reconstruction or Relocation. The first phase of the project was to geolocate nearly four (4) years of call data which was conducted thoroughly. Then the data was analyzed to find average call response times, locations most frequently responded to, types of calls most frequently responded to and to visualize patterns from the current site based on that information. To better help the decision making team visualize the call data – the information was published to ArcGIS Online and a Dashboard was created for each year’s worth of data. ArcGIS Pro was utilized to model drive time areas for both Station 2 and Central fire to help the team understand travel time coverages. Response time areas were then developed to help cross check the drive time models which the presentation describes in detail.
