Volunteer Surface Water Monitoring
Minnesota has more surface waters than any of the other 48 states. It contains 92,000 miles of river, 12,000 plus lakes, and 10.6 million acres of wetlands. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) and its partner organizations conduct a variety of monitoring activities to assess the health of the waters to better protect and restore them.

With such an abundance of water resources and such a limited amount of staff members, the MPCA supports volunteer monitoring programs aimed at increasing the amount of water quality data gathered, providing greater frequency and geographic monitoring coverage, and fostering a sense of stewardship for the precious water resources throughout Minnesota.

Currently, the MPCA coordinates two volunteer monitoring programs – The Citizen Lake Monitoring Program and the Citizen Stream Monitoring Program. The MPCA also provides technical support to The Wetland Health Evaluation Project.
