Abstract: This proposal represents the preliminary phase of a project that will eventually provide a single, real-time, user-friendly website, designed to provide Rhode Island citizens with a comprehensive overview of the ongoing status of Rhode Island's water resources. We have compiled a three-year graphic record of water levels in the Scituate Reservoir, and have associated fluxes in these levels with climatic events and relevant historical data (e.g., average water levels in previous years). Here we seek the necessary resources to construct a website to allow the RI public access to these data, data that would otherwise be neither particularly easy to obtain nor interpret.
