Free Webcast: Monitoring Watershed Program Effective

Monitoring Watershed Program Effectiveness
Thursday April 10, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. Eastern

This EPA sponsored Watershed Academy webcast will address evaluating the
results of our efforts to control nonpoint source pollution on a
watershed basis.

Three types of data are needed to evaluate watershed management
projects: administrative, social, and environmental. Effectiveness
monitoring is designed to measure the actual impact of management
decisions, such as implementation of nutrient management practies
(administrative, social) and resulting impacts of nutrient levels
(environmental) in the waterbody. Instructors will preesent an overview
of watershed monitoring, three watershed effectiveness monitoring
designs, and identify issues to be considered when developing
effectiveness monitoring programs.

Instructors: Steven A. Dressing and Donald W. Meals, senior scientists,
Tetra Tech, inc.
