1. I co-authored a Study Design process and developed a training that has been used by groups for over 20 years, originated with Rocky Mountain Watershed Network (which is now dissolved) that is the basis of the WDC's Study Design Training. Originally funded by EPA, I have trained tribes, non profits, municipalities and special districts, state and federal agencies and stakeholder groups.
2. Created the Colorado Data Sharing Network (CDSN) framework, training, online data management system to get all non state and federal water quality data organized an into a common data hub, still going 20 years later.
