As part of the South Florida Water Management District's (SFWMD) ongoing efforts to expand transparency, public access and engagement, you are invited to volunteer to help us test a new program we will launch next year called DBHydroInsights. DBHydroInsights will expand the public's access to the water quality and other data used by SFWMD to make water management decisions.
The public is invited to sign up to volunteer to take part in our beta testing focus group to help test out DBHydroInsights at SFWMD.gov/insights. DBHyroInsights is a map-based interface into the District's vast amount of hydrologic and water quality data.
Volunteers will be asked to:
- Join periodic calls with SFWMD staff,
- Spend at least 30 minutes a week in the new system,
- Provide feedback to SFWMD on improvements,
- Learn more about water management in South Florida, and
- Participate now through April 2021.
After it officially launches in 2021, DBHydroinsights will provide quick access to current levels of major lakes in South Florida as well as flow gauge readings and other data on water control structures, stormwater treatment areas and all the other major components of SFWMD's water management and flood control systems. The database also gives access to current and historical data on watersheds and other sites throughout South Florida.
