The Story Map incorporates highly customized content to the Township including photographs, narrative, and interactive maps. Video clips were also incorporated. The goal was to provide a simple, creative, and effective tool showcasing technology to communicate what stormwater is and how West Norriton manages it, while meeting National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit requirements.
The Story Map has been distributed through multiple outlets, including the Township Facebook page, CEG’s social media outlets, and was accepted into the ESRI Story Maps Gallery. The Story Map has been viewed over 1,500 times and can continue to be distributed by the Township through different outlets to target their residents.
