Water Quality Monitoring

Data-Driven Conservation Efforts

The Water Quality Monitoring Team provides technical expertise, training and resources in order to engage diverse partners to collect and share new and existing water quality data with the goal of developing a comprehensive understanding of the health of the Chesapeake Bay.

These projects educate citizens on their communities’ impacts on water quality, help track the effectiveness of conservation and restoration efforts, and fill in data gaps at the federal and state levels. The Team works closely with Chesapeake Bay Program Partners to fill data needs and ensure consistency between data collected across the region.
