THE USE OF INNOVATIVE TOOLS AND TECHNOLOGIES TO EVALUATE WATERSHED-BASED PROGRAMS
Abstract:Traditionally, decision-making on clean water issues, such as water quality, public health, or project funding, has been focused along political boundaries. However, as local, state, and federal agencies begin to adopt watershed-based decision-making processes, the need for innovative tools and technologies that can define and manage data on a watershed basis has become more apparent. This can be especially critical when dealing with large amounts of data. Most programs that require the management of large amounts of information, whether it is financial, administrative, or project progress information, can benefit from the development of innovative management tools that allow program managers to take advantage of technologies (such as databases, GIS, and the Worldwide Web) to implement management solutions. These tools can help a manager organize, evaluate, and present program information from varied sources to a diverse audience.
