Description This project has been designed to help inform Ecology staff and management on the quality of field water data collected by other agencies and citizen volunteers. Water quality data collected by these groups are increasingly being used for management decisions at Ecology. Samples that require laboratory analysis will have recorded sources of error for each analytical procedure. However, there are no similar processes used for assessing the quality of data collected in the field by numerous different protocols.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
