Tier 2 Monitoring
This is the advanced monitoring stage of the Utah Water Watch program. Volunteers work with local watershed coordinators or UT Division of Water Quality scientists to collect high quality data for assessment purposes. Often this work monitors the effectiveness of specific restoration projects or Best Management Practices (BMPs) to help validate water quality improvements.
Tier 2 involves more training and a higher level of commitment from a volunteer. Interested Tier I volunteers can contact the UWW program coordinator to see if there are opportunities in their local watershed for advanced monitoring.
