Free Watershed Academy Webinar on “How’s My Waterway? and Other Water Quality Apps” on Nov. 28, 2012 at 1-3pm EST
The US EPA is promoting their new apps and website which will let users quickly learn about waterways in the USA, condition of thousands of lakes, rivers and streams from their smart phone, tablet or desktop computer: http://www.epa.gov/mywaterway The app uses mobile device locations or a user-entered zip code/city name to send information on their local quality of water bodies. Way cool! The webinar will also discussion the SwinGuide (find a close beach and get beach status information!) and the RiverView (share pictures of your favorite river and share information on its condition) – two other apps you must check out and promote as well!
Note from their website: “This app was released on the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, which Congress enacted on October 18, 1972, giving citizens a special role in caring for the nation’s water resources. Forty years later, EPA is providing citizens with a technology-based tool to expand that stewardship.”
