MS4 Outfall Study and GIS Mapping, Mt. Vernon, Ohio

Smart Services was retained to provide services to meet the minimum Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) requirements set by Ohio EPA. This included visually identifying and horizontally locating MS4 point-source outfalls located within the corporation limits of the City of Mount Vernon. As part of our services, we walked and used a boat along the Kokosing River and other tributaries to identify possible MS4 outfall locations. At each identified location we then surveyed the location, took a photograph, and documented features (size, type of material, discharge, odors, etc.). The information will then be compiled in both an AutoCAD and a GIS format.
