Geographic Information System Assistance

The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) is pleased to offer global positioning units (GPS) to provide sewer system owners resources to begin mapping their sewer systems in GIS or improve their existing sewer system map. In return, sewer system owners will provide MWRD with their sanitary, storm, and combined sewer data. To obtain GPS equipment and related software at no cost, sewer system owners must enter into an Intergovernmental Agreement with MWRD.

To participate in the program, please submit a letter of intent with all supporting documentation to:

Catherine A. O’Connor 
Director of Engineering
Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago
100 East Erie Street
Chicago, Illinois 60611
