The publication provides guidance for designing water quality monitoring projects and selecting monitoring parameters. Although the focus is on forest management and streams in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, a broader perspective is taken and much of the information is more widely applicable. Part I reviews the regulatory mechanisms for nonpoint source pollution and defines seven types of monitoring. A step-by-step process for developing monitoring projects is presented. Because monitoring is a sample procedure, study design and statistical analysis are explicitly addressed. Part II is a technical review of the parameters, and these are grouped into seven categories: physical and chemical constituents, flow, sediment, channel characteristics, riparian, and aquatic organisms.
