It should be a little easier now to find information on the state’s water monitoring program. Information specialist Stefanie Forret says the state website with the info has been redesigned.The website has undergone a complete overhaul and now features pull-down menus that should make it easier to use. Forret says the website is a wellspring of information on water.It includes information on all of the state monitoring programs, the volunteer water monitoring programs, a glossary of terms and links to other sites. Forret says it does take some time to get all the information on the website.She says if you went on the site now, you wouldn’t get February information yet, because of the lag time in putting the information onto the site. But, you would get all the January information and months prior. Forret says interest has grown in the site as there are more stories in the news about fish kills and bacteria problems in the state’s waterways.Forret says the information gathered now will be a big help in the future, as the testing gives them background information on the quality of waterways, so if there are changes, they look back at the waters’ condition before the problem. The web address of the site is: www.igsb.uiowa.edu/water.
