Following the release of the "State of the Watershed" report which
includes an analysis of water quality, impediments to flow, and other
stressors on the River and its tributaries, FRWA’s Water Quality Monitoring
Project was launched in 2004.
The Water Quality Monitoring Program is designed to assess the "health"
of the Farmington River by working with partners and volunteers to:
- establish a baseline of water quality information.
- identify long and short term changes in water quality and land use.
- involve and educate residents of the Watershed.
The components of monitoring will broaden our understanding of the
health of the Farmington River and its tributaries, encourage volunteer
involvement and increase community awareness.
