Kuskokwim River Water Quality Mapper

Kuskokwim River Tribal Water Quality Web Mapper

Georgetown Tribal Council houses a water quality database and GIS map used to store baseline data for the Kuskokwim River, so that should a decline in water quality conditions occur, we would be able to take action quickly and identify the source of such changes. Use of this database limits the loss of information through turnover and moving office locations by having a centralized location for data storage, easily accessible online.

With the potential development of an open pit gold mine and the recent decline in Chinook salmon runs on the Kuskokwim, water quality data collection is becoming more common. This database and mapping system offers a place to store this information so that it can be viewed as a collective source of data, giving a big picture view of the health of the Kuskokwim River.
