Project Description:

This project will create an easy to use, web-based data visualization tool that integrates water quality data collected by citizen scientists with other available existing water quality datasets. The desired outcome is that the tool would help facilitate quantitative analysis of water quality parameters, resulting in findings that lead to changes in public and ecosystem health in West Contra Costa County. A publicly accessible data visualization tool such as this will help empower communities to advocate for necessary changes in their watersheds and be involved in the restoration process.
