About Our Program
From SDCK Watershed Wiki
San Diego Coastkeeper’s Water Quality Monitoring Program strives to:
- Provide a way for concerned citizens to find out more about their watersheds
- Educate volunteers on the science of water quality monitoring
- Collect and analyze water quality samples using procedures that yield high quality data
- Share this data with regulatory and stormwater agencies to better assess the conditions of rivers and creeks in San Diego County
- Use data to track the effectiveness of pollution prevention plans and
- Prevent further degradation of our precious water resources.
We achieve these goals by engaging hundreds of dedicated water quality monitoring volunteers, providing useful water quality information to the general public, and partnering with a wide variety of regulatory agencies, academic institutions, businesses and non-profit organizations.
