Thank You to Our Volunteer Citizen Scientists

Posted on Apr 28, 2015

Over the past 23 years, Friends of Casco Bay’s volunteer citizen scientists have monitored the health of our waters, collecting data on water quality around Casco Bay. This data on the Bay’s health informs our advocacy decisions, enables researchers to recognize changes in our waters, and allows us to track water quality trends over time. Today, this award-winning program is one of the longest-running volunteer monitoring efforts in the country and is a solid beginning of a long term data set. Our data collection methods are certified by the Environmental Protection Agency, making the data scientifically usable and credible. Many researchers, municipalities, and government agencies use our data, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Portland Water District, Maine Department of Environmental Protection, Maine Department of Marine Resources, Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve, and others. The data we collect is even sent to Congress every two years when the State of Maine submits its required Clean Water Act reports. All of this would be impossible without our dedicated volunteer citizen scientists.
