This webinar, recorded on November 19, 2020, featured Susan Cormier in the Center for Environmental Monitoring and Modeling of EPA's Office of Research and Development, presenting on the Freshwater Explorer. EPA’s Freshwater Explorer provides information on the status of water resources for networks of streams in the U.S. color-coded for measured freshness (e.g. low salt and mineral content). Users will be able to perform geographical searches and visualize background and measured data for water quality parameters. This combination of information is useful for states to work with communities and regulated entities to find the right balance of protection and use of fresh water.
