Addison County River Watch Collaborative’s monitoring protocols are rigorous and strictly followed. We can only expect our data to be useful if all our volunteers proceed according to our EPA-approved methods. In order for our data to be considered valid, we file a Quality Assurance Protection Plan with EPA (through the State of Vermont DEC) every year. Our ACRWC Field Manual spells out our sampling protocols in a step-by-step manner and the following videos demonstrate some of our field practices.
