Description

This dataset contains the monitoring stations that are used for the water quality assessments by Department of Health-Division of Water Quality (NDDoH-WQ)


Summary

This dataset contains stream, river, lake, reservoir and wetland monitoring stations maintained by the North Dakota Department of Health, Division of Water Quality, Surface Water Quality Monitoring Program.  Sites are sampled for a variety of chemical (e.g., cations, anions, trace element, nutrient, dissolved oxygen) and physical (i.e., temperature) variables for the following purposes:

• Provide data to establish, review and revise water quality standards.
• Assess water quality status and trends.
• Determine beneficial use support status.
• Identify impaired waters.
• Identify causes and sources of water quality impairments.
• Provide support for the implementation of new water management programs and for the modification of existing programs.
• Identify and characterize existing and emerging problems.
• Evaluate program effectiveness.
• Respond to complaints and emergencies. 
• Identify and characterize reference conditions.
