MMSD's surface water quality monitoring program started in 1979. Continued tracking of water quality, along with improvements to the District's wastewater treatment system and stream restoration activities, will help ensure a healthy aquatic environment and will help retain the beneficial uses of Lake Michigan and Milwaukee-area waterways to the public.
Central Laboratory Group: Scientific professionals, technicians, chemists and helpers who analyze samples and report findings from the test results.
Industrial Waste Pretreatment Group: Team members include Industrial Waste Engineers who monitor and enforce point source pollution programs, including Industrial Waste Pretreatment, Mercury Reduction, and Household Hazardous Waste.
Systems Monitoring/Conveyance Group: This group of analysts review, organize, monitor and analyze data generated from monitoring and sampling of the conveyance systems, groundwater, and stormwater programs. They are also responsible for regulatory reporting.
Water Quality Research Group: Limnologists and water resource specialists who sample, monitor, analyze and report on the water quality in local watersheds.
Field Monitoring Group: Monitoring technicians and specialists engaged in sample and data collection, monitoring, and downloading data into the District's databases. This group provides support to Industrial Waste Engineers, Conveyance, Water Quality Research groups and Technical Services construction programs.
