WRIA 1 Whatcom Water Planning StoryMap
WRIA 1 – the Nooksack River Basin – in Whatcom County is planning for the next 50 years as climate change and development alter the water environment. We developed an interactive StoryMap that helps visualize how rainfall patterns will affect the rivers, the salmon, and our human communities.
Watershed management planning is complicated and complex. The Water Supply StoryMap developed for the WRIA 1 Watershed Management Board does an incredible job of taking an enormous amount of data and putting it into a format that is understandable and visually exciting! We’re looking at a relatively dire future for water in the Greater Nooksack River Basin and this StoryMap does a great job of communicating the significance and urgency of issues facing our watershed.
