Monitoring Locations and Water Quality Reports

Monitoring Locations and Water Quality Reports

Because SRWA’s data is shared with partner agencies and is archived in the State of
Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources’ Surface Water Integrated Monitoring System
(SWIMS) database, SRWA water quality monitoring is managed under a Quality Assurance
Project Plan (QAPP) document. This document defines water quality sampling and analysis
protocols and establishes rigorous data quality control standards and checks.

Macroinvertebrate Monitoring Locations

We conduct seasonal macroinvertebrate monitoring during a window in the spring and in the fall. Our goal is to get a baseline of 4 years of water quality data from each site.

Current Chemistry Monitoring Locations

Our volunteers conduct monthly chemistry monitoring at each site.

Water Quality Updates and Baseline Reports

Find our water quality monitoring reports for each site by selecting the site on the map below.

Next project: Story Map

Do you have photos from any stream locations within our service area (see below map)? We would like to create a special map just for photos and short stories, and we welcome you to contribute to this project. We will credit you however you’d like for your submission. Just be aware that this map will be viewable by the public through our website. Email submissions to


Interested in our Water Quality Monitoring data?

The Superior Rivers Watershed Association’s (SRWA) Data-sharing Policy is designed to make data from the SRWA database as freely available as possible for academic, research, education, and other professional purposes. Our goal is to promote the use of the best available information to make informed decisions.  In this spirit, SRWA has developed a formal request procedure to allow our data to be shared in a way that is fair and appropriate.
