MSUEWQ has been involved with volunteer monitoring since 2004. We work collaboratively with watershed groups across the state to help educate citizens on non-point source pollution issues, foster stewardship on water resources, and help develop monitoring programs that can collect credible data to help inform management decisions.
In the last 5 years, volunteer monitoring efforts in the state have gained momentum with more watershed coordinators interested in developing a monitoring program than ever before. Advanced volunteer monitoring programs have been working with MDEQ approved technical documents, which has resulted in a growing library of quality assurance project plans (QAPP), sampling and analysis plan (SAP) and standard operating procedures (SOPs) that are catered to the many individual watershed goals across the state.
