The California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) needed a more efficient way for regulators to track, monitor and manage large volumes of casework data, as well as easily perform data analysis to identify macro and micro trends.
Additionally, regulators needed a tool to quickly identify issue areas for targeted action and integrate acceptance of various lab data submissions from the regulated community.
The SWRCB selected EcoInteractive to implement a customized version of EcoInteractive’s off-the-shelf SaaS platform EcoTracker. The resulting software solution became known as GeoTracker at the SWRCB.
The first iteration of GeoTracker only supported the workflow of one program. Over time, GeoTracker expanded significantly to manage the project workflow, data management and analytics needs of more than 15 programs and site types for the SWRCB, including:
Today, the SWRCB utilizes GeoTracker to provide a unified system for all relevant participants including regulators and business users in the regulated community to submit data, track progress, conduct reviews and correspondence.
The platform is also used by regulators to perform targeted analysis and data reporting for a variety of stakeholders.
By leveraging GeoTracker’s streamlined data tracking, EDF data standard acceptance and analytical reporting tools – the SWRCB has been able to:
Utilizing the system’s unique capabilities, the SWRCB has been able to drive successful outcomes across various programs including:
On a typical day, GeoTracker is used by over 11,000 users across regulators and the regulated community. More than 2,000 regulatory users from the nine Regional Water Boards and over 100 local agencies access GeoTracker to manage workflow related to cleanup efforts, waste discharge, data collection on farm irrigation from farmers, groundwater quality monitoring and more across more than 98,000 cases and sites.
