Water Resources Dashboard - Learning Sessions to Provide Scientific and Practical Applied Information

As we have mentioned previously, several water and planning organizations (i.e., American Planning Association, American Water Works Association, Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Water Environment Federation, Water Environment Research Foundation, and Water Resources Foundation) worked  to create a water resources dashboard.  Additional information about the dashboard can be found here.
