500,000 Water Quality data and 115 Water Quality Maps

Volunteer as a Water Quality Monitor   

Eighty citizen volunteers, trained and equipped by the MRC, test water quality parameters as indicators of the health of the Indian River Lagoon.  Every week salinity, dissolved oxygen, pH, and water clarity are tested at approximately 80 sites.  Fecal coliform and nutrients are also tested at selected sites.

Our staff then processes the data into a color coded map for each of the key water quality parameters.  The collection of data reflects the history of the Indian River Lagoon water quality progress or degradation.
