The Watershed Resources Registry Project: a tool for Prioritizing Restoration and Preservation Efforts in mid-Atlantic States - Ellen Bryson | Environmental Protection Specialist | EPA Region 3 in Philadelphia

Ellen will demonstrate the Watershed Resources Registry (WRR).  A WRR is a state-centric, interactive mapping tool that finds and scores areas for preservation or restoration of wetlands, streams, terrestrial areas and natural stormwater infrastructure. In partnership with state and other federal agencies, EPA has helped create WRRs for Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. Ellen will discuss the genesis of the project, the GIS approaches for creating the statewide analyses and the ESRI-based interactive website. Her background includes both environmental planning and GIS.
