Our Team

The AFT has been working with Northwater since 2014 and have been impressed with their work ethic and technical watershed management expertise. This prompted us to engage Northwater to build a water quality model to support our initiates in the Upper Macoupin Creek watershed. After researching other water quality models, we determined that their SWAMM system was the most applicable to our project needs. We are utilizing it to determine cropland areas where in-field management measures, precision outreach, and conservation practices will have the greatest impact on improving water quality. The model has quickly become a reliable tool to support our ongoing efforts. The staff at Northwater are a pleasure to work with and we will continue to engage them to support other AFT initiatives in the Midwest.
