GIS Day 2019 - Participate in ACC Stormwater's GeoTrail!

Monday, November 4, 2019

National GIS Day falls on Wednesday, November 13 this year. GIS (or Geographic Information System) is an integral part of stormwater management, from creating maps of stormwater infrastructure and polluted streams, to tracking the placement of green infrastructure practices. Geography is embedded into almost everything we do. In honor of this national celebration, ACC Stormwater is encouraging everyone to participate in our official Geocache GeoTrail, “Water Logged.” The geocache trail, which will bring participants up close and personal with several good examples of stormwater management and green infrastructure, launched on November 14 of 2015. Interested participants should visit www.geocaching.com and search for “Water Logged.” Anyone who completes the trail and logs all caches is eligible to receive a prize! All you need is a cell phone with GPS and internet access. For more information, email stormwater@accgov.com or call 706-613-3440.
