Community Science

Community groups are becoming increasingly involved in monitoring, education, protection, and restoration projects in Vermont. VT DEC provides assistance and training to volunteers whenever possible. Watershed associations are presently active on approximately 26 rivers and many lakes in the state.

For detailed information on designing a community water quality monitoring program, please refer to the Vermont Volunteer Surface Water Monitoring Guide.
