Massachusetts Sewered Service Areas

Author(s):
Description:
This datalayer displays town boundaries and sewered serviced areas within the MAPC region of Massachusetts. Data was compiled from individual sewer maps dated ca. 1989. Any area greater than .25 miles from an existing sewer line was not included in the serviced areas. Serviced areas are divided into "single service" areas which rely on a single local sewer system or "multiple service" areas which share sewers with adjacent or regional sewer systems This dataset was originally prepared and distributed by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC). It was published as part of the Massachusetts Electronic Atlas database in 2001. The Massachusetts Electronic Atlas (MEA) was a collaborative project to provides access, via the Internet, to data about the Commonwealth, its thirteen regional planning agency districts and 351 cities and towns. This dataset is now only available via The Harvard Geospatial Library. The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) is a regional planning agency representing 101 cities and towns in the metropolitan Boston area. Created by an act of the Legislature in 1963, it serves as a forum for state and local officials to address issues of regional importance. As one of 14 members of the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), MAPC has oversight responsibility for the region's federally funded transportation program Stretching west from Boston to include most of the communities inside the I-495 corridor, the MAPC planning area consists of 22 cities and 79 towns. Coastal communities, older industrial centers, rural towns, and modern cities are represented within the 1,422 square miles that comprise the MAPC region.
