Coordinated Monitoring Program

Coordinated Monitoring Program

Safeguarding water quality in our two iconic rivers


To protect and enhance the health of the Sacramento and American rivers, Regional San and the Sacramento Stormwater Quality Partnership joined forces in 1991 to create a Coordinated Monitoring Program (CMP). The fundamental purpose of the CMP is to develop high-quality data to aid in the development and implementation of water quality policy and regulations in the Sacramento area. With the help of Regional San’s Environmental Laboratory, river-water data is collected and tested for a variety of constituents.The CMP identifies water quality conditions, trends and influences that are invaluable in defining the health of the river system in a cost-effective manner.

CMP-partnering agencies support many area programs committed to safeguarding river water quality in the Sacramento and American rivers. Data from the program is available on CEDEN.
