Mystic River Recreational Flagging and Daily Boating Advisory Project

Oct 31, 2017

Prepared for Mystic River Watershed Association by Jeffrey D. Walker, PhD

Summary: Developed statistical models for generating daily predictions of bacteria exceedances at multiple locations in the Mystic River basin. The models are run each morning using real-time weather and streamflow data, and provide estimated probabilities of bacteria levels. Results are available on the project website, through an automated twitter bot, and on digital signage placed at various locations in the basin.
