Watershed Restoration & Protection Studies (319 Monitoring)
Project Chief: Matthew B. Hicks
The USGS-MWSC partners with various federal, state and local cooperating agencies to implement Monitoring Plans for watershed
restoration or protection projects. The purpose of monitoring is to measure change in water quality throughout the duration of
watershed specific restoration efforts targeted to remediate specific pollutants of concern. The goal is to document, using
defensible scientific data, success of these water quality restoration efforts. Currently, monitoring efforts are on-going in
seven watersheds across the State. Data-collection activities include sampling for hydrology, sediment, nutrients, and biological
communities. Sampling frequency can ranged from periodic, manual sample collection to automated real-time monitoring. All
data-collection activities follow procedures and quality assurance plans of both the USGS and cooperating agencies.
