The Estuary Data Mapper (EDM) is a free, interactive, downloadable application under development at the US EPA that allows users to quickly and easily retrieve, view, and save subsets of online US coastal estuary-related data. It is intended to help researchers, managers, and decision-makers find and map data relevant to coastal estuary systems.
The USGS National Water Information System provides information on quantity, quality, distribution, and movement of surface water and groundwater for the United States.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) is developing e-Estuary, a decision-support system for coastal management. E-Estuary has three elements: an estuarine geo-referenced relational database, associated estuarine and watershed GIS coverages, and tools to support decision-making. A population of 300 estuaries with associated watersheds at the HUC-10 scale (16-100 ha) or larger within the conterminous U.S. has been identified for characterization of estuarine geomorphology, tidal and hydrologic regime, and land-use/land-cover of associated watersheds.
The Ohio Coastal Atlas (OCA) Map Viewer displays geospatial information about Lake Erie and its watershed to support coastal decision-makers, land management professionals, engineers, educators, interest groups, and the general public. Many of the data layers are also highlighted in the Ohio Coastal Atlas Second Edition.
The resource provides information on Ohio's nonpoint pollution control plan.
The Water Finance Clearinghouse allows communities to access information and resources for water infrastructure and services, including funding sources and reports. The Clearinghouse contains information on watershed protection and source water.
The National Source Water Collaborative brings together 30 different collaborative efforts across the United States to share information and encourage coordination between entities working toward the common goal of source water protection.
Investing in habitat restoration and ecosystem resiliency projects provides sustainable and lasting benefits that reduce risks posed to coastal communities from extreme weather events, changing environmental conditions, and known or potential climate change impacts. The Coastal Ecosystem Resiliency Grants Program is intended to build the resilience of coastal ecosystems and communities in the U.S. This grant program funds projects that develop healthy and sustainable coastal ecosystems through on-the-ground habitat restoration and conservation.
The Regional Coastal Resilience Grants program supports regional approaches to activities that build resilience of coastal regions, communities, and economic sectors to the negative impacts from extreme weather events, climate hazards, and changing ocean conditions.
