The State of This Project

We are developing empowering water-knowledge tools with free access to data records and related news. We may fund the ongoing work with paid memberships that add benefits, for example, but we intend to serve the citizen layperson as well as utility managers, municipalities, and public and private agencies.

“We” mostly means editor and designer-developer Marlin Ouverson with informal input and review. We are not registered as a 501(c)(3) or have any other non-profit status at this time. For us, for now, it is a feel-good project and that’s enough.

We are developing more resources as our time permits. If we grow a bit, or get volunteers, we’d like some real database and data-mining expertise to expand the amount and type of data here and to expand our area of service beyond North America. As in all our work DBA External Design, we’ll continue striving to keep the tools simple, the value high, and complex information easier to explore and digest.

Thank you for your interest, enthusiasm, and support for water issues at home and elsewhere.
