Peconic Estuary Water Quality Status & Trends Comprehensive Assessment

Water quality monitoring has been conducted in the Peconic Estuary for over three decades. Extensive data sets have been generated from surface water quality monitoring, stream and groundwater monitoring, continuous monitoring sondes and atmospheric deposition monitoring. Cameron Engineering & Associates have been contracted to compile and analyze these data sets. Trends in water quality over spatial and temporal periods as well as responses to management strategies such as adoption of TMDLs and the PEP CCMP will be interpreted in an in-depth report.
