Functional and Flexible Information Management Tools Are Essential to Total Quality Watershed Planning
Effective watershed management requires knowledge and understanding of water quality conditions that is detailed, specific, accurate, current and accessible. Information management tools available today provide mechanisms to manage watershed data and support appropriate water quality decisions. Watershed planning requires the integration of water quality data, model output and land use information specific to current local conditions. While tools have been developed at the national level to provide some watershed characterization, these tools are often non-specific or outdated when they are applied to local projects. Effective management decisions related to land use, BMPs, TMDLs or other watershed issues can be supported by customized graphical user interfaces developed around geographically linked data that can be developed cost effectively for watershed projects.
