Community Based Monitoring (CBM): A Valuable Tool for Water Quality Data

 What is ‘community-based monitoring’(CBM), and how does it work in the context of water quality data collection?

This workshop was designed to introduce CBM initiatives taking place in Atlantic Canada, and show how they can be used to build community engagement while developing useful water quality datasets. Atlantic Water Network’s Director, Emma Wattie and co-presenter Alexandra Webb  highlighted a few techniques used for sampling with volunteers and introduced participants to the DataStream programs – a set of online platforms for organizing and sharing water quality data in Canada.
