URI Watershed Watch Data Available Online

We are actively working to get both the current and legacy data onto our website. Starting in 2002, we began posting bacteria data, with results usually posted within one week of sample collection. We try to have Secchi depth, chlorophyll and temperature/dissolved oxygen data charts available as soon after the end of a monitoring season as possible, but with more than 250 sites currently being monitored, and a strict process for assessing the data to ensure they are as accurate as possible, this can take quite a while. We also continue adding older data as time permits.

If you don't see data for your monitoring site, please contact us - it may just be an oversight, or we may be in process of getting it online.
