The monitoring program for the Portneuf River Basin enables stakeholders to assess and document the influence of natural and human-caused factors on water quality. The program is a cooperative effort of private industry, educational institutions, scientists, and government agencies at numerous levels:
Center for Ecological Research, Idaho State University
City of Pocatello
Idaho Department of Agriculture
Idaho Department of Environmental Quality
Idaho Department of Fish and Game
Portneuf Soil and Water Conservation District
Three Rivers RC&D Council, Inc.
James T. Brock of Rapid Creek Research, the implementing contractor, said, “We have been very impressed with the functionality of the VDV software. I have no doubt that the Vista product range should be able to address most of the needs of our customer.”
Data from seven measuring stations is stored in the Portneuf River Basin VDV database system. Data originate from Campbell Scientific data loggers.
The Portneuf River Basin program runs Vista Data Vision applications for their logged data, data base storage, displaying data to the web for its users, and for reporting.
