Senior's internship with DNREC lays the groundwork for environmental health-tracking tool

Imagine having a handy, web-based tool that would provide detailed yet easily accessible information about the health of Delaware’s water, air, wildlife or other natural resources over time.

That was the goal that University of Delaware senior Stephanie Miles kept in mind each time she reported for work at her internship with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC), where she helped to lay the groundwork for the development of a tool to present “indicators” of environmental health.
