The report is designed as a manual to evaluate the efficiency of surface-water quality monitoring networks whose primary objective is to document compliance with or progress toward attaining ambient water quality standards. The manual provides methods to evaluate the efficiency of each of seven operational areas: Network Plan and Design, Personnel, Facilities and Equipment, Sampling Quality Assurance, Data Distribution and Dissemination, and Agency Interactions. A technique is presented for the overall integrated evaluation of the operational areas. A final section provides methods to evaluate the efficiency of budgetary allocations.
