Chesapeake Monitoring Census

Thank you for taking 15-20 minutes to help us learn about your monitoring efforts!

Are you monitoring in the Chesapeake Bay watershed?

This census is the first step of a larger project called the Chesapeake Monitoring Cooperative, which brings together data from community, municipal, county, state, and other non-federal monitoring programs, to aid understanding of the health of the Chesapeake Bay watershed in cooperation with the Chesapeake Bay Program.

With your help we will be able to identify locations, frequency, and types of monitoring taking place, throughout the watershed!

Through the Chesapeake Monitoring Cooperative there will be many opportunities for your program, including: 
  • A Chesapeake-wide database to store, retrieve, analyze, and interpret data;
  • Capacity-building technical support to assist in monitoring program implementation;
  • Access to data communication workshops; and
  • Increased collaboration and networking across the watershed.

We appreciate you taking the time to answer our questions.
