MaxDef Lakes -- A Commitment to Accuracy
Garmin has invested in their own fleet of survey boats equipped with ultra-sensitive sonar technologies. This fleet is cruising lakes and rivers throughout the U.S., creating our own exclusive ultra-high detail maps - a level of detail that's unprecedented in recreational mapping. We started with the most popular fishing lakes and are traveling around the country adding more lakes all the time. These are Garmin exclusive MaxDef lakes.

For the first time, citizens of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal have free access to local water data. The data is the result of a water quality monitoring pilot project started by the California-based nonprofit SmartPhones4Water (S4W). SmartPhones4Water, an idea developed by Ph.D. student Jeff Davids and the late Dr. Peter-Jules van Overloop from Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), was started in California in 2014. The goal of the organization is to leverage smartphone technology to gather water data in countries where such data is scarce. The method is simple: a network of local citizens use their smartphones to capture and upload the data to an online server and database.Read More
Celebrating its 25th year, Coosa River Basin Initiative is forming a new water monitoring partnership with the Berry College Environmental Science program. Coosa River Basin Initiative, also known as CRBI , is a grassroots environmental protection organization that works with volunteers to protect and preserve the Coosa River in Rome, Georgia and the surrounding cities. CRBI is a member of the Georgia Water Coalition and the Waterkeeper Alliance. You may be wondering what is so special about the Coosa River. The answer is just about everything.

The result of a harmful algae bloom in the summer of 2016, the enhanced Utah Lake water quality monitoring program reached its one year milestone in September. Located near the Provo and Orem metropolitan areas, the lake is Utah’s largest freshwater body and a popular water recreation and fishing spot. In the summer of 2016, recreation users reported an unusual amount of scum on the surface of the water. Utah Lake is monitored by the Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ). Prior to the 2016 harmful algae bloom (HAB), the UDWQ successfully used regular water sample testing and citizen reporting to stay on top of any incidents.Read More
