MassDEP in collaboration with the UMass Water Resources Research Center and the Massachusetts Rivers Alliance presents a workshop on water quality data management, review, and submittal to MassDEP and/or WQX (EPA’s Water Quality Exchange).
Who should attend: Representatives of monitoring groups who have a QAPP and may wish to submit their data to DEP and/or EPA. While an actual program may be used as an example to illustrate the steps necessary to submit data, there won’t be time for individual assistance on specific projects.
