Monitoring Program

CRWD Monitoring Program

In 2004, Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD) established a monitoring program to assess stormwater quality and quantity in various District subwatersheds and best management practices (BMPs). Prior to CRWD’s monitoring program, a lack of data made it difficult to characterize the quality of District water resources. Today, CRWD collects comprehensive water quality and continuous flow data from major subwatersheds, ponds, lakes, and BMPs within the District.

What We Monitor

CRWD monitors critical measures of water quality, including:

  • Water Volume

  • Sediment

  • Metals

  • Bacteria

  • Other Pollutants

  • Nutrients
