Extensive GIS data and Drone work was presented and shared with USGS.  Campbell County Fiscal Court was able to use this data combined with field data from the Fire Department, citizen historic data, and active survey work to leverage this as a local match-in-kind for the USGS Flood Inundation Study for Four Mile Creek.


In May, USGS added an extra research to the budget using these in-kind services as a 50/50 match.  The USGS team complimented us on the useful detail of the data, stating that it is rare to receive this level of community cooperation.  We will also be showcasing a few of our watershed story maps and Northern Kentucky Map Lab (NKYmapLABs) during this presentation.
