National Aquatic Monitoring Center

Our mission is to develop scientifically sound methods to assess the ecological integrity of stream, lake, and wetland ecosystems and transfer that knowledge to stakeholders involved in their conservation and restoration. We are housed within the Department of Watershed Sciences, Quinney College of Natural Resources, at Utah State University. We collaborate with federal, state, and tribal agencies to help develop monitoring and assessment programs designed to meet the goals of the United States Clean Water Act and other relevant federal and state mandates.
