Volunteer Monitoring Program

In 2003, the CCWA developed a new study design for our Volunteer Monitoring Program. We are currently analysing the collected data to watch for changes in the water quality that may be impacted by land use.

Previous Results of Stream Monitoring Activities

Shown in the table below are the results of three stream monitoring events conducted the Conodoguinet Creek Watershed Association. The Fall 2002 (October 18) event was the first conducted in close proximity to a storm event. While three of the four averages were significantly higher than the two previous tests, particularly striking are the elevated nitrogen levels in the area west of Carlisle.
