Measuring nitrates at a local stream

The PCD Stream Team and Lake Monitoring Programs are closing in 2022. We are not onboarding new monitors. See our memo for more details.  

Stream Monitoring-The Stream Team Program closed June 17, 2022.

Find out what it takes to be a stream monitor and what the requirements are. Stream health is critical to our way of life here in the Pacific Northwest. By having community monitors gathering data on our streams, we provide a good first line of defense in identifying problem areas. 

 Lake Monitoring-The Lake Program will close at the end of 2022.

Volunteer lake monitors are important stewards of local lakes. Through monitoring they track current conditions, identify emerging problems, and provide outreach to other interested community members.
