DRM Template Request Form

In 2014, BWSR received a grant from LCCMR (Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources) to produce a geospatial database template (i.e. with empty feature classes and tables) designed to contain Minnesota Statute 103E public drainage system data from local drainage authorities (e.g. Counties, Watershed Districts). The template is intended to help drainage authorities modernize and better manage their drainage system records. In addition, the template puts the data into a consistent, standardized form that makes is more readily accessible to users such as hydrologists and water managers.<br/> <br/>However, as a result of a stipulation for receiving the grant, <i><b>BWSR requires that those drainage authorities that use the template make their hydrographic data (ditch/tile centerlines, drainage structures, profile points and watershed boundaries) available annually to the public via the Geospatial Commons.</b></i> The button below links to the Template Request Form that must be filled out and signed by the proper drainage authority personnel and then submitted to BWSR. Once authorized, the drainage authority will then receive the template along with its metadata and user instructions.<br/><br/>For guidance on how to use the template to modernize your drainage records please watch the DRM Template User Webinar (http://www.bwsr.state.mn.us/drainage/2016-12-19_DRM_Template_User_Webinar.mp4). Also, for step-by-step instructions please see the recently updated Drainage Records Modernization Guidelines (http://www.bwsr.state.mn.us/drainage/drainage_records_guidelines.pdf).<br/><br/>For more information on the project itself see the Drainage Records Modernization and GIS Database (DRMGD) Project section on http://www.bwsr.state.mn.us/drainage.
