Presentations from the National Water Quality Monitoring Council's biennial national conference, held in Denver in April 2010, are now available online, thanks to sponsorships by the North American Lake Management Society, Tetratech, and the US Geological Service.

"Monitoring From the Summit to the Sea" focused on the many facets of water quality and water quantity monitoring for improved understanding, protection, and restoration of our natural resources and communities. The conference provides a unique forum for water practitioners from all backgrounds--including governmental organizations, volunteers, academia, watershed and environmental groups and the private sector--to exchange information, develop skills, and foster collaboration and coordination. Presenters showcased new findings on the quality of the Nation's streams and groundwater, and highlighted recent innovations and cutting-edge tools in water-quality monitoring, assessment, and reporting.
