Town brook Research Watershed
To effectively limit the interaction between pollutants and HAAs, these quantifications of HAAs must be presented in a useable manner for watershed managers. Displaying these HAAs on the landscape is still in its infancy owing to the fact that geographical information systems (GIS) are not very user friendly. To this end, we have developed an internet-based tool to locate HAAs that is coupled with the increasingly popular Google Earth software package. Employing real-time data, tools of this type could improve efficiency in watershed management by correctly locating HAAs for implementation of best management practices to help in the mitigation of nonpoint source pollution.
