One of the tools the department uses to protect our water quality is a Total Maximum Daily Load study. No previous training or education required.
All volunteer data is used to establish baseline data on streams throughout Missouri, establish long-term trends, and locate streams in need of professional follow-up monitoring. Starting in 2021, this workshop consists of a 2-part virtual learning and field training. Clean, safe, usable water is essential to all life. A TMDL works the same way. Level 3 - This is a one-on-one audit at a monitor's stream site. There are multiple levels of certification: Introductory Level - Monitors learn about watersheds, how to select a monitoring site, measure stream flow, and collect biological data.
Often, modern streams Missouri water quality assessment many of these factors which can lead to degraded water quality downstream. Starting in 2020 this training is conducted in the field by request only. To complete a Level 3 certification, the volunteer must successfully demonstrate all monitoring procedures and techniques as well as identify all of the invertebrates collected at their site. Level 2 and 3 monitors are required to recertify once every three years to maintain quality assurance and confidence in data submitted.
The first step is to sign up for one of our Introductory workshops. This includes training for watershed mapping, site selection, stream discharge, and biological monitoring for stream macroinvertebrates.
CSI volunteers are trained at VWQM level 2 or 3 and have submitted consistent and credible data. In Missouri, the standards define the water quality goals for a waterbody by designating its.Level 2 and above is used to supplement agency-collected data for meeting Clean Water Act goals, such as evaluating best management practices, forming watershed management plans, and tracking performance of Total Maximum Daily Load TMDL implementation plans.
The Validation training is a shorter, condensed version of the Level 2 training.
Through different monitoring procedures, it is possible to detect many kinds of water quality impairment and identify probable causes so that steps can be taken to alleviate or correct the issue.
The standards also give the beneficial uses for each of those waters.
Volunteers who have successfully completed the Introductory training and have submitted required data are eligible to attend a Level 1 workshop.
This includes training for watershed mapping, site selection, stream discharge, and biological monitoring for stream macroinvertebrates.
