Freshwater Data Portal

The purpose of the Freshwater Data Portal is to allow regulators and citizen scientists to view and understand the availability of monitoring data from multiple sources, its temporal and spatial distribution, and its potential usability.

There is an increasing amount of freshwater citizen science data becoming available and a growing need for this to be accessible and understandable. Data from networks such as FreshWater Watch, Riverfly, SmartRivers, and Bloomin' Algae has potential to complement regulatory monitoring to increase our understanding of the health of rivers and lakes and support actions.
