The Center is equipped to offer the following field and laboratory services. We can also provide training for watershed groups to collaborate on water quality monitoring designs.

Field Monitoring:

  • Water sampling
  • Storm water event sampling
  • Electro-fishing
  • Plankton
  • Benthic macro-invertebrates

Long term data collection:

  • Dissolved oxygen
  • Temperature
  • Ambient Light (PAR)

The center offers services to help assess the condition of a watershed. Data generated from our assessments provide important information to local decision makers, which can aid as a guide for improvements. Reports generated by the assessment will include recommendations for conservation investments such as storm water management strategies.

Assessments can take the form of:

  • GIS watershed evaluations
  • Field sampling and laboratory analysis
  • Habitat and Stream Corridor Assessments

Often non-profit environmental organizations require third-party evaluation of grant-sponsored programs. We can conduct such evaluations for projects that have both an environmental and social dimension. Please contact us for more information.
