Update for March 2nd

Personas:

Ted: From a rural area and has been paying attention to the several water crisis across the country (such as the one in flint). And is now concerned about his water quality in his home.  Currently he has to buy disposable testing kits or send tests to 3rd parties.  He wants a way to frequently monitor his water quality.

Dianna:  Dianna is a mother of 4 who lives in California.  Recent water shortages have made water conservation a big concern/desire of hers.  She as of now, does not have a way to keep track of her family’s water usage, and would like to be able to keep track of this throughout the month.
