Stormwater and Technology / Emerging Trends and Strategies for Open Data and NPDES Compliance

The State Water Boards Stormwater Strategy identifies the need to improve accessibility to information and data provided by stormwater permittees so that staff, interested parties and academics make informed decisions about specific neighborhoods or across large regions. There is also a desire to apply technology to improve efficiency of staff through hardware, applications and mobile devices. This presentation will describe what data has been transferred for open access, what is planned in the future to improve accessibility, use and analysis as well as some thoughts on future trends and applications.
