EPIC created the Water Data Prize to inspire new approaches to sharing information about water quality that help all consumers make informed decisions about whether their water is safe to drink. During the 2020 Water Data Prize, we had more than 30 organizations and individuals in the water sector submit entries, and an esteemed panel of judges reviewed the submissions looking for simple and effective ways to communicate about health data to as many people as possible.
When we examine the winning entries, but also almost two dozen other entries, patterns emerged in what entrants submitted to us and that can be useful to any utilities’ effort to adjust their water quality communications.
Our 2020 Water Data Prize report summarizes key takeaways from the prize, and illustrates how water quality reports can be transformed with data visualizations, translation services and community input.
