Bloomberg Business covers collaboration with Google

October 19, 2015

The Freshwater Trust has partnered with Google to discover how using its advanced cameras could help survey waterways quicker and more effectively. In October, Bloomberg Business covered the collaboration.

The Freshwater Trust rented a Google Trekker and rowed it down California’s Russian River.

The Trekker snaps 15 photos every 2.5 seconds pinpointing the location of pollution, lack of streamside vegetation and invasive species. Valuable data on water temperature, levels of phosphorous, and oxygenation were also gathered. Data like this can help us make more informed decisions on how to best restore and protect our nation’s waterways.
