Cassie Johnson, Communications Associate, October 6, 2023
The Water Resources Data Management AmeriCorps Member will be responsible for managing various projects in support of stream impact investigations and associated collection/management of a range of data relevant to water resources management (e.g. water quality/chemistry, hydrologic, fish/salamanders/macroinvertebrates, geomorphic and geospatial). This member will be responsible for keeping-up with equipment maintenance, data collection, and data management on a consistent basis to ensure minimal data loss. Persistent coordination with landowners and partner organizations will be critical for advancing project objectives. The Water Resources Data Management AmeriCorps Member will spearhead efforts such as: 1) planning, deploying, and managing a network of hydrologic monitoring equipment as an effort to assess the role of “underlying sanitary infrastructure” in unnatural stream drying, 2) working with regional volunteer stream monitoring groups to get their data upload into a common open-access database to facilitate accessing, mapping and analyzing the data on a common platform (this is a pilot project for a state-wide initiative) and 3) mapping sources of impacts to instream biology. This member, under the advisement on our Stream Specialist, will be given the opportunity to take ownership of such projects and work independently on methods development and project implementation. Detailed documentation of work completed and well-organized data management are critical expectations associated with all aspects of this position.
