The site uses geolocation to determine the closest waterways to the user. Then, using the EPA’s database of “State water quality monitoring reports provided under the Clean Water Act,” the site provides information on the local waterways’ pollution status (unpolluted vs polluted), type (including acidity, PCBs, pesticides, etc.), as well as what is being done. In addition, the site also provides a visual map of the user’s specific region, color coding polluted waters and unpolluted waters.
