GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing

Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Type A Future Public Water Systems" (2003)
Description: The NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis developed the GIS data set, Type A Future Public Water Systems, as mapped by contractors to the NC Rural Center (engineering firms McGill & Associates and Hobbs, Upchurch & Associates) during 2004, 2005, and 2006 to facilitate planning, siting and impact analysis in the 100 individual counties of North Carolina. This file enables the user to make various county-level determinations when used in conjunction with other data layers. "Future" in the title Type A Future Public Water Systems refers to system boundary the water syster owner expects in 2010. The tabular data will be the same as it was for the current data. The purpose of this data set is to inform users of key information about public water systems in North Carolina, with particular focus on system size and growth, water usage, water treatment, and capital improvement needs of the systems.
