How's My Waterway December Webcast

Join Us For Our Next Special Webcast on How’s My Waterway

December 15th 2020

3:00 - 4:30 pm Eastern

The newly enhanced How’s My Waterway (HMW) tool was announced by EPA in June 2020. HMW assembles publicly available water quality data into a user-friendly package that provides information on the quality of our nation’s waters at the community, state, and national level. HMW aggregates data from eight databases across EPA to provide unprecedented transparency that EPA's partners and the public can use to learn about water, explore data, and find out what’s happening to improve the health of our waters.

Please join EPA's Watershed Academy for this webcast to view a live demo of the recently enhanced How’s My Waterway. This webcast will provide an overview and demonstration of the user-friendly, accessible, data-rich and map-centric HMW application. This demonstration is meant to help users:

  • Discover which local waterways are being monitored and where.
  • Explore information about the health of local waters, identify challenges and learn about what’s being done to restore or protect the waters.
  • Find out more about your drinking water.
  • Discover if waters in your community are suitable for swimming or eating fish and if they support healthy aquatic life.
