MVPC is a regional planning agency serving northeast Massachusetts. During the historic winter of 2015, ten feet of snow fell resulting in a catastrophic failure of Newburyport’s vacuum sewer system. To address this problem, MVPC worked with the Department of Public Services to map the system and create a mobile GIS application. Using ArcGIS Server and applications from ESRI, officials are able to record functional information, manage the sewer system and alert the public as to its status.
