WATER QUALITY MONITORING

Since 2000, the Mystic River Watershed Association has maintained a comprehensive water quality monitoring program that serves as the fundamental component of our work. This program, the Mystic Monitoring Network, is staffed by over 48 trained volunteers from area towns and cities and provides critically important data with regard to the sources, type and volume of existing impairments to the river’s natural environment and water quality. Explore data here!

Baseline Monitoring Program

See the interactive table below for detailed information on trends in water quality in the Baseline Monitoring Program throughout fifteen sites in the watershed.

Hot-Spot Monitoring Program

Intensive sub-watershed studies are performed through this program.

Cyanobacteria Monitoring Program

Cyanobacteria, a potentially harmful bacteria, is monitored throughout the watershed primarily at recreational areas.
