Webinar: Village Blue Project: Real-Time Water Quality Monitoring in the Baltimore Harbor
EPA and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) initiated the Village Blue project to increase public awareness about local water quality in the Baltimore Harbor and the Chesapeake Bay. Village Blue is providing real-time water quality monitoring data to the Baltimore community and complements work already being done toward the Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore’s goal of making Baltimore Harbor swimmable and fishable by 2020. The monitoring site is helping to test, evaluate, and develop new water sensors that collect real-time water quality data. Several local and state organizations partnered with EPA and USGS to implement the Village Blue project and raise public awareness about the importance of monitoring and protecting local waters.
