Stream monitoring is an important component of stormwater mitigation. Consistent data related to water quality and quantity allows stormwater managers to better assess the state of our waters and develop solutions that will have a lasting positive effect. Volunteers are typically used to collect samples at a variety of locations along a stream or within a watershed. These samples are sent to a lab and analyzed. On occasion, volunteers may also gather visual data as to the condition of a stream. Data collected in this way may include presence or absence of riparian buffers, streambank stability, and presence of litter or trash.
See below for a list of current monitoring efforts. Monitoring results for each watershed will be updated throughout the summer. If you would like to assist in data collection, please let us know.
