Integrated Monitoring Networks Workgroup (formerly TMAW & NTWG)

Scope and Purpose

Manage CBP monitoring networks and coordinate with additional networks to address the new Chesapeake Watershed Agreement.

The CBP currently manages several water-quality monitoring networks including a watershed network and several estuary networks (water quality and SAV). The networks are complex with multiple partners collecting data. There is additional monitoring that needs to be conducted to address the outcomes of the new Bay Agreement. The STAR will work with the CBP Goal Teams to assess existing networks or identify gaps that can be utilized to assess the new outcomes.

The use of Citizen monitoring will be examined to help meet the expanded monitoring needs and applied as appropriate. STAR has begun the process to assess monitoring designs and coordination through the Building And Sustaining Integrated Networks (BASIN) process. The initial work is too evaluate the water-quality networks, followed by assessing options to address monitoring needed for outcomes in the new Bay Agreement.
