In April 1994, EPA co-sponsored the fourth in a series of National Volunteer Water Monitoring Conferences. The conference included time devoted to small group discussions. What emerged from these discussions was a vision for the future of volunteer monitoring in which: Lines of communication are open between data users (especially government agencies) and data gatherers (the volunteer programs); EPA plays a strong role at the regional and national levels in enhancing communication, promoting standardization of methods, assisting in data management, and encouraging state use of volunteer data; State and local agencies recognize the value of volunteer data; Strong state or regional associations of volunteer programs exist to support and promote volunteer monitoring; and Volunteer monitoring programs adopt a watershed approach.
