A decades-in-the-making legacy of nutrient pollution has significantly degraded Cape Cod’s coastal water quality. The region is working to address this challenge and stakeholders now have a new way to track the effectiveness of actions and measure their impact. The Cape Cod Water Quality Data Portal is an online, map-based decision support tool that allows users to explore trends in water quality over time. At this session, attendees will learn more about this new tool and how it can be used by local decision makers, scientists, resource managers, and others to investigate changes, address nutrient pollution, and protect water quality.
