Water Quality Monitoring

Pierce Conservation District combines the knowledge and commitment of interested citizens with the technical expertise and resources of staff by providing opportunities for local communities and residents to learn more about the health of our streams and lakes. Getting involved through these programs is an easy way to learn about protecting the health of our waters. Visit the pages below for more information on how to become involved.

  2. Stream Monitoring

    Stream health is critical to our way of life here in the Pacific Northwest. By having citizen monitors gathering data on our streams we provide a good first line of defense in identifying problem areas.

  3. Lake Monitoring

    We all benefit from our local lakes, whether we use them for recreation or enjoy them for their natural beauty. Volunteer monitors collect water samples and measure lake water quality over the summer months to provide insight on the health of our local lakes.
