An updated version of How’s My Waterway (HMW) was released publicly in June 2020. HMW provides a comprehensive overview of water quality data and information in the United States on three different scales: community, state and national. HMW pulls in data from eight databases across EPA through web services with the goal of answering questions about aquatic life, eating fish, swimming, drinking water, restoration and protection. This demo is meant to help users:
•Explore information about their drinking water, local stream conditions, and whether their waterways are suitable for swimming or eating fish and if they support aquatic life.
•Discover if their waterways are being monitored and the location of local monitoring stations.
•Learn what issues might be affecting their waterways.
Please join us for this webcast to view a live demo of the recently enhanced version of How’s My Waterway. This webcast will provide an overview and demonstration of this user-friendly, accessible, data-rich and map-centric HMW application. Participants will feel empowered to communicate water quality information to their community in order to restore and protect their waters.
