"Using Remote Sensing to Empower the Public to Address Water Pollution" is a 3-day workshop hosted by the Meridian Institute. Researchers, technology companies, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and funders will collaborate to advance the use of remote sensing to address pollution in U.S. inland surface waters. The meeting is intended to create a platform to work toward a larger goal of empowering conservation NGOs to make better use of remote sensing data to achieve water resource protection objectives.
It is with great pleasure to have Waterkeeper's VP Krystyn Tully present Swim Guide on September 15 as part of the "Existing Projects and Products" presentation. Swim Guide will serve as a highly successful example of a water quality information tool for the public.
As an app that was initially designed to serve the Lake Ontario watershed but now serves 4 countries and over 7,000 beaches, many lessons have been learned – and continue to be learned! Krystyn will share some insight on during her presentation on what we've learned throughout Swim Guide's growth and development.
