2012 Workshop

The objectives of the National Aquatic Resource Surveys (NARS) Workshop and Training Sessions were to bring together EPA, State, Tribal and other partners working on water monitoring issues across waterbody types to:
  • Discuss and share information on the national aquatic resource surveys and their relationship to other state/tribal programs.
  • Provide technical training and tools so that States, Tribes and other partners can build their capacity to implement aquatic resource surveys at multiple scales (data management, analysis, interpretation)
  • Provide examples of how to use the aquatic resource survey methodology to inform state and tribal needs at multiple scales.
The NARS Workshops and Trainings were held in conjunction with the 8th National Water Quality Monitoring Conference (NWQMC).
