NRWA Water Monitoring Program
This year (2015) marks the twenty-third season that dedicated volunteers have monitored water quality and reported conditions and observations at over 43 sites throughout the Nashua River watershed. The Water Monitoring Program builds community awareness of water issues, helps identify and restore problem sites, promotes advocacy for our watershed, and increases the volume of information available on our waters. We use the monitoring results to create a River Report Card that is shared with volunteers, the public, and Massachusetts and New Hampshire state agencies each month. View historic water quality data. For more information on what we monitor, and why, see our Volunteer Water Monitoring Manual. Monitoring for the 2015 season is supported in part by grants from the Foundation for MetroWest, the Greater Lowell Community Foundation, and BAE Systems in Nashua, NH.
