|Serious water quality testing volunteers hard at work! :)|
It is expected that our results will be compiled and analyzed over the next couple of months. As soon as the report is released it will be posted here!
From the NHDES website for VRAP information:
During the summer months, VRAP receives water quality data from trained volunteers. The data are reviewed for quality assurance, and are entered into the environmental monitoring database (EMD) at DES. During the off-season, VRAP interprets the data and compiles the results into an annual report for each river. VRAP volunteers can use the data as a means of understanding the details of water quality, as well as guide future sampling efforts. DES can use the data for making surface water quality assessments, provided that the data met certain quality assurance/quality control guidelines.
