Launching BasinScout® Platform 🚀 
We’re proud to announce the launch of a partnership with The Freshwater Trust focused on agricultural conservation planning. Together, we’ve developed BasinScout® Platform - a tool for efficiently targeting high-impact agricultural conservation opportunities to achieve water quantity and quality goals.

Check out our press release here to learn more about this exciting new collaboration.
BasinScout® Platform uses satellite data and machine learning to automate the conservation planning process. BasinScout Platform can help water agencies, natural resource managers, and sustainability directors save time while maximizing the impact of their investments.

The Freshwater Trust, a river restoration and water conservation nonprofit, 
has been a partner since Upstream Tech’s early days. We’re excited to be launching this next phase of our work with them to optimize conservation decision-making.
How can BasinScout® Platform empower your work?
  • Scan large areas to evaluate current management practices, such as irrigation patterns and cover cropping.
  • Create a scenario that quantifies the impacts of feasible actions on water quality and watershed conditions.
  • Generate targeted recommendations by field to improve water use, nutrient runoff, or other objectives.
  • Prioritize actions given budget constraints to achieve conservation outcomes.
  • Measure impact and progress on practice adoption over time.
