Monitoring

Siuslaw Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring Program (VWQMP)

  1. 12 sites with monthly volunteer grab samples for temp., dissolved oxygen, e. coli, turbidity and more
  2. 12 continuous monitoring stations measuring dissolved oxygen and temperature at 15 to 30 minute intervals. 

The data obtained in the Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring Program (VWQMP) is baseline data. Baseline data helps water quality professionals build an understanding of watershed ecosystem health. Data collected in the VWQMP is not used to locate or penalize polluters. We currently measure the following water quality parameters: clarity; salinity (in the estuary); dissolved oxygen; turbidity; bacteria; temperature; and weather conditions at 12 sites within the Siuslaw Watershed. This project is funded through an Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board monitoring grant with support from the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality.
