TTF Watershed Litter Code Violations

The Tacony-Frankford Creek has a major stormwater trash problem, as discussed here, here and here.

In this post, I want to show how to map watershed boundaries, Philadelphia City Council District Boundaries and litter Code Violation Notice data to show the geographic relationships between chronic litter areas, stormwater flow and creek trash.

Here is my map:

I made this map using ESRI’s ArcMap and Philadelphia’s open  Code Violation Notice data. There were 6,258 litter code violations in the Philadelphia portion of the TTF Watershed. The Tacony Creek Park, highlighted in data green in the map, receives a large load of stormwater litter that gets caught along the banks and in vegetation along the banks.
