CHARLESTON, W.Va. Engineers are taking the next step in Charleston's storm watersewer system mapping project, connecting plotted manholes and inlets on the city's surface with the system of pipes that run beneath.
The city's stormsewer system hasn't been thoroughly mapped since the 1930s or updated since the 1970s, according to Tom Elkins, the city's stormwater manager. The city often finds this information is outdated, as maps don't include improvements or projectspecific drawings exist only in individual files and on paper.
