Coordinated Monitoring of Surface Water
Coordinated monitoring makes collecting and analyzing data on surface water more efficient for the Surface Water Quality Monitoring Program and its participants—the Clean Rivers Program, other state and federal agencies, municipalities, and others. The coordinated monitoring schedule is typically planned and developed from January through May of the fiscal year preceding the year for which monitoring activities are planned.
The TCEQ supports coordinated monitoring with guidance for site selection and sampling requirements for routine monitoring, special study, and targeted monitoring.
