This project is using publicly available water quality measurements from two different watersheds in Oregon to help both organizations (i.e. FDA and ODA) as well as individual farmers better understand the quality of water being used in fresh produce production. It is the goal of the project to help better inform the regulations being placed on farms while also providing farms with accessible information on their farm's water source quality.
