Leveraging the power of mobile technology and citizen science to improve lives by strengthening our understanding and management of water

Water touches nearly every facet of our lives.  We rely daily on a clean and reliable supply of water for drinking and cooking.  We use water to grow the food we depend on.  We create energy with the water that falls high in our watersheds.  Too much water can negatively impact our lives by flooding; not enough water can lead to droughts and famines.

In most developing countries, fundamental information about the amount, location, and quality of water is lacking.  This lack of information makes it impossible to make good water management decisions.  We aim to develop the information necessary for wise stewardship of water resources, while making a difference in peoples lives.  We accomplish this with our three pronged approach of research, education, and employment.
