Water Quality Monitoring

Water quality data are used to characterize waters, identify trends over time, identify emerging problems, determine whether pollution control programs are working, help direct pollution control efforts to where they are most needed, and respond to emergencies such as floods and spills. Water quality monitoring also has many other valuable uses to government agencies, water quality practitioners, drinking water utilities, industrial dischargers, environmental groups, and ordinary citizens concerned about improving or preserving water resources.





The ESRI Conservation Program is the non-profit support arm of the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI).  Through their generous donation, we have used ArcGIS software to create and develop spatial analysis, computer mapping and geographic information systems (GIS).
