Surface Water Quality Monitoring: Annual Workshop

The annual SWQM Workshop is held in the fall of each year. It brings together surface water monitoring professionals in Texas who provide water quality data to the TCEQ to learn about procedures for assuring the quality and comparability of data, and to share advances in research.

Besides getting hands-on training in surface water and biological monitoring protocols, participants can:

  • learn about TCEQ quality assurance measures and program updates
  • interact with other water-quality professionals
  • share information about research, new technologies, and future directions
