Volunteer Aesthetics Monitoring in the Milwaukee Estuary AOC

Purpose

Additional monitoring is necessary to determine the status of the “Degradation of Aesthetics” impairment in the Milwaukee Estuary AOC. Some volunteer monitoring has been completed in the past by volunteers. Additional data is necessary so that an assessment of the impairment can be made using protocols updated in 2014. This assessment will determine if aesthetics are still impaired in the AOC and if so will provide information that would be necessary to determine management actions.

Objective

Hire a contractor to recruit, train and coordinate volunteer monitoring by at least 30 volunteers who will each collect data at the 12 monitoring sites. Also this funding would provide some hours for Lake Michigan AOC LTE to assist with data management.
