The City of Kent’s GIS group has maintained an inventory of its stormwater management features since the late 1970s.  We maintain an extensive collection of stormwater-related features; however, the general schema for this data is a product of the old days of coverages.  New GIS data management principles, NPDES reporting standards, and increased demand for data access from Environmental, Permitting, and Maintenance staff have prompted the City to proceed with updating the Stormwater Data Management Model in GIS.  

The City of Kent’s Stormwater Data Management Model update is a work-in-progress.  The City can now take advantage of ArcSDE, ArcGIS Server, and Portal for ArcGIS technologies.  This presentation will discuss the process of creating the first draft of the City’s new Stormwater Data Management Model in 3 primary steps: 1) reviewing the City’s current stormwater data, Esri’s Local Government Information Model (LGIM) for Stormwater Management, and other jurisdictions’ stormwater data models , 2) interviewing stakeholders and consumers of the stormwater GIS data throughout the city, and 3) creating a draft data model.  We will highlight the goals, major stumbling blocks, and lessons learned during this process, and then lay out our road map for moving forward.
