Sampling and Reporting: Mid-Year Review with the California State Water Board (SWRCB)
In this webinar, we reviewed monitoring program best practices and discuss sampling procedures. Members of the California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) discussed the current sampling data trends in SMARTS. In addition, they covered common problem areas and how dischargers can be successful during annual reporting. Lastly, we had an open Q&A with the audience on topics such as non-compliance with sampling requirements, sampling procedures, and submitting data to SMARTS.
