Grant to allow real-time collection of river data

The Upper San Pedro Partnership (USPP) will begin work on a web portal to provide researchers and the public with real-time hydrological data on the San Pedro River, thanks to a $99,000 grant. The web portal will provide readily accessible information and data visualization tools, and it will ensure timely availability of Sierra Vista Subwatershed and Upper San Pedro monitoring data. The information gathered will allow researchers to increase understanding of the natural system, provide the public a better way to understand how the hydrologic system works, and help the CCRN further its mission to implement recharge and conservation projects that provide the most benefit to the river.
