Watershed Management Program
Watershed Management Management Overview
Over the past decades, watershed management laws have been established in public watersheds across the United States. From rivers, lakes and to oceans, these laws are declared to preserve the purity and quality of shared bodies of water. The existence of these laws is essential for facilitating healthy ecosystems and providing water safe for human use and recreational activity. The challenge with enacting this legislation comes the management of potentially diverse laws across multiple communities and municipalities that reside in a given watershed. Ideally, communities unify into a single cooperation towards watershed management. Usually, this involves the union of several towns, cities, or regions which share a single body of water. To prevent inconsistencies among this type of collaborative reporting, and increase organization of this vast amount of collected data, it is key to implement watershed management software. DSD Web Works has created such software that simplifies the organization of complex systems and allows for both ease of access and management.

Watershed Management Program - Web Application Reports
- Inspection Report
- Inspection Due Report

Reports are quite flexible and are easily altered by date range, geographic location, by type (e.g. violation type, permit type, etc.). In addition, reporting tables are easy to read and sortable by a simple click of a given header. Details of listed properties in a give report are easily viewed by clicking on a that specific row or on the 'details' link.

The system has a built in cross checker for property ownership. Does the database match real property? The system is intelligent and answers that question on the fly which allows the inspector or other authorized personnel to update owner information with county/town real property data or ignore. In case of real property transfer (a property sell), the watershed data may be more accurate. Our system has the built in flexibility for this situation.

DSD Watershed Web Application is built for complex relationships between properties and components to enable management of real-world situations encountered within watersheds.
This means that a given property can have multiple connecting structures associated with multiple systems that contain multiple components. All of these elements can be shared either across connecting structures, systems or even properties. We have essentially simplified the complexity of watershed management.
Watershed Management Program - Web Application - Simplified
The true beauty of our watershed management web application is the simplicity of the user interface. Properties are found using a unique 'instant' tool that displays properties based on last name, street number, street name or tax map numbers. The display is live, meaning it interrupts the key strokes instantly. For example if we search for a property by owner's last name and type a 'd', all last names that start with a 'd' appear instantly. Then we type 'e', now the list is instantly filtered for 'de'. Next a 'm', again the list is instantly altered to reflect all last names that are 'dem', etc. Same would be true using any of the other variables.
A simple click on the list for the given property brings up a single property details page that displays all relevant information in a very easy, intuitive manner. All functions are also contained within this same display allowing for easy manipulation from a single view.
