Safe Water Project
The Safe Water Project is a team of volunteers at Code for Boston who are using data modeling, data visualization and machine learning to predict, visualize, and share data about the presence of hazardous drinking and surface water contaminants in the United States.
We are interested in collaborating with health and environmental organizations.
Representatives for nonprofit organizations and government agencies interested in our work should contact Andrew at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to also join our Slack channel at Code for Boston and meet the team.
The Safe Water Project works with Boston-based community partners. These organizations have needs related to data infrastructure and data science, and we provide our expertise in assisting them.
Currently we work with the Charles River Watershed Association. We help them deploying their predictive model, visualizing and communicating their data, as well as better understanding their constituents. You can learn more about this project in the related folder.
