Solve for Bay-Wide BMP Tracking

“With FieldDoc we have  standardized data and actionable insight as to where each of our grant-funded projects stand with respect to implementation and nutrient reductions. This could be the solve for Bay-wide BMP verification.”

Jake Reilly
Director of Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation

Environmental Compliance

"We discovered high bacteria levels at this Back River Waste Water Treatment Plant, triggering MDE inspections and the discovery of major violations. When discussing our data with MDE attorneys, EPA, and funders, we've used Water Reporter to visualize  pollution emanating from the second-largest wastewater treatment plant in the state of Maryland."

Invaluble Assets

"The Commons and its Water Reporter Platform have been invaluable assets as we work to transition the work of volunteer science programs into the digital age."

Max Herzog
Program Manager, Cleveland Water Alliance

Opening Data in the Sierras

"Volunteers, and community members  play a vital role in our organization. The dashboard that The Commons has built gives us a way to share our data with our community in real-time, which is invaluable for volunteers collecting the data and anyone interested in checking on how the creek is doing. We now have a single place to store all our data, which is both accessible and flexible for staff. We are very excited about the results of this partnership - thank you to everyone at The Commons for being so great at solving data challenges!"

Helen Fitanides
Science Director, Sierra Streams Institute

Integrations for the Win

"Since the start of our Clean Waterways program in 2012, Anacostia Riverkeeper has engaged over 8,600 volunteers and collected over 165,000 pounds of trash from the Anacostia watershed, the program has continued to grow steadily. With the help of The Commons we have established a technical strategy and integrations that makes all of our cleanup data available and easily viewable to the public while also supporting trash reporting and categorization to DCDOE as well as the Anacostia TMDL."

Director of Operations, Anacostia Riverkeeper
