Water Quality Monitoring Program
Arcata Fish & Wildlife Office Fisheries Program

The Water Quality Monitoring Program is one of many efforts of the AFWO to provide scientific information about area river ecosystems. The need for water quality data stems from a variety of goals that improve our understanding of the connectivity of water quality to the aquatic habitat, fish health and flow management of river systems. Water quality monitoring provides empirical data to support modeling efforts, regulatory needs and natural resource decisions.
