Plan to attend either in the morning (9:00 – 11:30 a.m.) or in the afternoon (12:30 – 3 p.m.)

Topic
This is a collaborative effort sponsored by the Indiana Water Monitoring Council to provide an opportunity for organizations and individuals to learn about the different methods for collecting water quality data and measuring discharge that are used by:

• U.S. Geological Survey
• Indiana Department of Environmental Management
• Hoosier Riverwatch

Participants will collect side-by-side water quality samples (chemistry and E. coli) and will measure discharge in the stream. Results obtained from the different methods used will be compared and discussed.

This event will also include information about how to improve the quality of your data and discussion about how calculated loads may be affected by differences in field methods.

Details
The event is free but participation will be limited to the first 60 people who RSVP. Preference will be given to watershed coordinators and others conducting or planning to conduct water quality monitoring on the local or regional level.

More details to come. In the meantime, please send your RSVP to Jody Arthur, jarthur@idem.IN.gov
