The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) has broad responsibility for managing water quality and quantity in the Delaware Basin. Monitoring and data are critical to carrying out this mission. This presentation will describe key DRBC monitoring programs and how the resultant data is used to manage water resources. The presentation will especially focus on novel uses of data collected by DRBC and partner organizations including near real-time assessments, interactive web applications, automated models, visualization of complex processes, and serving out data to stakeholders and the public.

Before DRBC John worked for 9 years for the US Army Corps of Engineers in Chicago, Illinois and Galveston, Texas. He has degrees from Penn State and the University of Illinois at Chicago and is also an adjunct instructor at Temple University.
