Township starts GIS mapping project

Hopewell Township has undertaken a project to map all stormwater features within the township as required by the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).

This project began in late December and is expected to take up to two months, weather permitting. 

As part of this project, the township’s consulting engineer, Van Cleef Engineering and the Hopewell Township Public Works Department will be using a GPS/GIS (global positioning/geographic information) system to locate various stormwater components throughout the township.

Items such as inlets, catch basins, manholes, pipes, outfalls, and headwalls will be located.

Many of these items are located along public roads, however, some may also be located within the township’s easements that are on, or adjacent to, residential properties.

Residents do not need to take any action. The work will occur entirely outdoors and will not damage any property, improvements, or vegetation. 

The Van Cleef Engineering personnel will be wearing safety vests that identify them as Van Cleef Engineering employees. They will be carrying a GPS unit, a small computer tablet and other measuring tools. 

The township and Van Cleef Engineering thank you in advance for your cooperation while this necessary task is completed.

Once completed, the township will have accurate mapping of stormwater management features which will ultimately lead to improved water quality for everyone.

If people have any questions, contact Van Cleef Engineering at (609) 689-1100.
