Surface Water Integrated Monitoring System (SWIMS)
Welcome to the Surface Water Integrated Monitoring System (SWIMS), a Wisconsin DNR information system that holds chemistry (water, sediment), physical, and biological (macroinvertebrate, aquatic invasives) data.
SWIMS is the state´s repository for water and sediment monitoring data collected for Clean Water Act work and is the source of data sharing through the federal Water Quality Exchange Network . DNR Fisheries and Water Quality Biologists use the system to locate monitoring stations, providing a gateway to final, reviewed fisheries management datasets housed at the U.S. Geological Survey. SWIMS is also the data system that citizen volunteers use to document water monitoring results for our state´s lakes, streams and wetlands.

Citizen Based Stream and Lakes Volunteer Monitors used SWIMS to record their data since 2007!! For more information about these outstanding monitoring programs see the links below.
