Probability Monitoring Design Implementations by State

Background

Color coded implementation status of probabilistic designs in State monitoring programs:

A partial list of States that have published or adopted Water Quality Monitoring Strategies and Reports that include probabilistic sampling. List includes: web sites, documents and brief program descriptions.

State web sites that the Design Team has identified can be accessed by clicking on the map or selected from list.  State and Territory links not included: District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands.  Additional links to State level aquatic resources information can be found at the web site maintained by EPA Office of Water @  http://www.epa.gov/ow/states.html

Visit State's web site by choosing State from the map below or this list:

Wyoming Wisconsin Washington Virginia Vermont Utah Texas South Carolina Rhode Island Pennsylvania Oklahoma North Dakota North Carolina New York New Mexico New Jersey Nevada Nebraska Montana Missouri Mississippi Minnesota Michigan Maryland Maine Louisiana Kentucky Kansas Iowa Illinois Idaho Georgia Florida Connecticut Arkansas Arizona Hawaii American Somoa Guam Alaska N. Mariana Islands Puerto Rico US Virgin Islands
These categories present State level commitments to implementation of probability based surveys. Inclusion of target population estimates in the 305(b) reports represents full implementation. The completion of a State Design, which may include initial implementation, includes States that have committed to future 305(b) reporting. States that have included a probability survey component in their published monitoring plan are depicted as "monitoring plan". States that have not committed to a State level design, but are implementing probability surveys in portions of the target population are shown as "interest area design". States that are not included in any of these four categories are shown as "TBD" and includes States that are undergoing evaluation and consideration efforts , as well as States that have implemented alternative monitoring strategies.
Note: Combining State survey results requires consistent Coverage of Target Population, Indicators of condition or criteria for Impairment.
