Water Monitoring

Water monitoring is performed at restoration sites throughout the year by trained volunteers. Volunteers collect data on pH, dissolved oxygen, salinity, temperature, and water clarity, and then enter those data into an on-line database. (Online data entry and viewing is currently unavailable while we rebuild our website)

e-Learning provides volunteers, students, and the public with an interactive learning environment for understanding estuarine water quality and how it is measured by the SCORE program.

Resources provides links to volunteer monitoring materials, including sampling protocols, as well as links to useful information on water quality and volunteer monitoring.
