A new interactive story map produced by the U.S. Forest Service provides a fascinating way to share information and engage the public. The map displays vegetation and land use changes which impact water conditions and quality. Land cover information is used to estimate water quality based on surrounding land use. These estimates show how changes in land use and forest cover can affect natural filtering processes and water quality.
