Hydraulic fracturing, directional drilling and other advanced technologies have enabled production of domestic oil and gas from shale and tight rock throughout North America.
The Stormwater Connection from Rain to Recreation
The stormwater connection from rain to recreation is an interactive web application designed to describe how a variety of land uses interact with stormwater (rain water plus surface water runoff) in and near the Clear Creek and Armand Bayou watersheds. Each stormwater pathway represents unique opportunities for the instillation of stormwater management practices. The integrated Stormwater Connection Data Viewer provides water quality data collected by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) at the inflows and outflows of two stormwater management measures in intuitive, dynamically graphed visualizations. The goal of the application is to educate stakeholders about water quality and the presence, purpose and effects of stormwater management measures in their watersheds.
