"Commissioned by the United States Congress, the NCWQR supports the sustainable use of soil and water resources and helps protect human health and the ecological integrity of aquatic ecosystems through research, monitoring, education, and outreach.".

    The Water Quality Portal (WQP) is a cooperative service sponsored by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), EPA, and the National Water Quality Monitoring Council (NWQMC). ADEM data, as well as data submitted by other agencies, is available through the portal. The book outlines general considerations related to water quality monitoring, provides a general protocol for a monitoring programme and includes such elements as staffCited by:

    Volunteer Monitoring Network There is no national volunteer water quality monitoring program, but many states have a statewide program with their own set of parameters and methods. Our neighboring states, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, and Wisconsin have statewide volunteer stream and river monitoring programs. The water quality monitoring market is classified on the basis of application into groundwater, waste water, aquaculture, drinking water, coastal and laboratory. Geographically, the water quality monitoring market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East and Africa (MEA), South America and Europe/5(24).

Water quality monitoring is defined here as the sampling and analysis of water constituents and conditions. Constituents found naturally in water that can nevertheless be affected by human sources, such as dissolved oxygen, bacteria, and nutrients.
