    • Old map of Lansdowne street light information will be consolidated into the shapefile and used in conjunction with the PA Conservation Works Grant Project.
    • When sewer MH’s are digitized they will be done so as points/nodes and a connected sewer network. MH’s will contain ID’s, Line work will contain direction and diameter.

    • Will try to dig for MH this week. – MH discovered and marked (April 27th)
