Project Database Search Instructions

The database can be searched by using the % which is a wildcard and searches all the records within the entire database.

To obtain a smaller subset of results you can select an item from one of the drop down menus. For categories, you may selected a broad category such as water resources for all the water resource related projects or you may selected one subcategory such as rain gardens to view results related to rain gardens. A complete list of categories can be found at the bottom of this page.

You may selected an item from more than one drop down list to narrow your search. For example, you could select 2017 for the certification year and Mercer for the county. The search would then display all the projects that were certified in Mercer county for 2017. After you have made your selection or applied a filter, you can view the results by selecting the record to be viewed from the review filtered projects dropdown list.

In addition to using the drop down boxes, you may also use the keyword search. The keyword search will seach the entire database for the selected word. Enter a keyword in the wildcard box, then press apply search filter button. The results will be displayed in the review filtered project results portion of the screen.
