Challenge
The public lacks real-time information on Anacostia River water safety. Current methods for testing water quality takes days to return results.
Solution
Anacostia Riverkeeper used DataRobot’s Automated Machine Learning to develop a system to predict if E. coli levels are above safe levels based on aggregated data from 28 sensors in the Anacostia River.
Result
The system developed by Anacostia Riverkeeper and DataRobot is successfully being utilized to predict water quality fluctuations in the Anacostia River throughout the day, providing an additional layer of information added to the physical samples.
