Sub-Watershed Investigative Monitoring (SWIM)
Entry ID: gomc_59

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This program has direct ties to The Annapolis River Guardians (ARG), which
provides baseline data at representative sites within the watershed. Their data
shows that point and non-point fecal coliform contamination is the most serious
water quality problem in the region, however it does not locate where the
problems are originating from. The way we monitored for fecal coliform had to
be taken to a new level in order to locate these sources.
