IMRivers, a project founded by VERTICES, recognizes the importance of community involvement in maintaining the health of our waterways. We developed an interactive map called North Carolina Muddy Water Watch. The map allows concerned citizens to post pictures and descriptions of violations they witnessed in the area that could have a negative effect upon the health of surrounding waterways. Many of these violations go unnoticed by regulatory agencies. With the help of our interactive mapping services and a handful of concerned citizens, these violations are made public. The hope is to provide a centralized place for the public to view water contamination sources across the state.
