San Joaquin River Regional Monitoring Program

SJRRMP Project Summary

As part of the effort to restore the California River Watersheds, 34 North has developed a web based toolset to support the San Joaquin River regional monitoring program. The OpenNRM toolset aggregates and presents the necessary data so that all stakeholders can effectively monitor and analyze the conditions of the SJR and it’s watershed. Data in the form of interactive maps, real time sensor data, science publications, hydrologic data, water quality data, historical sampling, land-use data, fish data and more is organized for easy discovery and analysis to answer questions important to the community. In addition to watershed conditions, the website serves as an education tool for understanding the vast area and it’s many features. Interested visitors can learn about species (The SJRRiver watershed is home to the iconic spring-run Chinook salmon) , water uses, land use (Major land use along the San Joaquin Valley floor is agricultural, with over 2.1 million irrigated acres, representing 22% of the irrigated acreage in California)
