Sometimes you get the most astonishing insights from the simplest requests. “With this dataset, we would be providing all of our stormwater inventory to date (that is the same as any “internal” stormwater data we have), which does not include all stormwater infrastructure in the City of Charleston as we do not have all infrastructure captured in GIS and/or hard mapping. We continue to build our stormwater inventory over time and update the data portal accordingly.”
I am hopeful that on further reflection, the city of Charleston will retreat from its apparent position that it does not actually know what all of the city’s drainage system components are. I really hope that this is a misinterpretation.
