Aerial Photographic Survey to be Performed of the Village



In support of the Village‚Äôs Municipal Storm Drain Project, the Village has contracted for an aerial photographic survey to be performed of the entire Village.  This survey will provide the basis for a detailed analysis of topography and stormwater conditions in the community.  This aerial survey, however, must be performed before the trees leaf-out.  The contractor has indicated that they should receive authorization to fly as early as Thursday, April 4, and that the flyovers may even occur over the weekend of April 6-7.
 
The aerial survey will be performed by a Cessna-style airplane that will fly at about 2,500 feet above ground-level.  The flyover is expected to be completed in one day, however, an additional day may be required.  The flyover will occur during the middle of the day (to avoid shadows) and should take about three hours.  The plane will fly very slowly over the Village making multiple trips.
 
Once the aerial photographic survey has been completed, this information will be used to support field verifications of features on the ground.  The field verifications will be limited to the areas being studied under the Municipal Storm Drain Project. 
 
Should you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact the Project Coordinator, Ms. Ellen Sands at 301-654-7300 or ellen.sands@montgomerycountymd.gov.
