What has changed is the way people think about printing and the potential impact their actions may have on the environment.

Article

“If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it’’— may be one of the most oft-quoted mantras in business. Of course, the advice is just as important for governments. Just ask the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), which is responsible for monitoring the health of the nation’s rivers and streams.

It is an ongoing challenge for this federal agency to secure the money required to maintain real-time monitoring stations across the country. Moreover, if the USGS stops executing this mission, the benefit of long-term water monitoring data is lost.
