NEW Water's Aquatic Monitoring Program (AMP) monitors and patrols the waters of NE Wisconsin. Samples are taken from 34 different stations throughout the Fox River, East River, and the Bay of Green Bay to monitor the quality of our waters. These samples are analzyed in NEW Water's state-certified laboratory.
For more information on River and Bay water quality, please contact: Sarah Bartlett, Water Resources Specialist, email@example.com, (920) 438-1088.
For more information on Watershed water quality, please contact: Erin Houghton, Watershed Specialist, firstname.lastname@example.org, (920) 438-1092.
For information and data from NEW Water and partner’s efforts in the greater Green Bay waterways, please visit the Fox-Wolf Watershed & Green Bay Water Quality Datahub. Here you will find historical and current data from various projects all focused on understanding and improving water quality in the Fox-Wolf Watershed. This interactive datahub was created from a collaboration with NEW Water, Fox Wolf Watershed Alliance and ADC staff, funded by a grant from the Great Lakes Observing System (GLOS).
Ongoing Study Indicates Toxins in the Bay
NEW Water is participating in a joint study with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Zilber School of Public Health regarding toxins present along the shoreline at Bay Beach. Data indicates the presence of cyanotoxins, which are harmful to humans and animals. Read more here
In the photo above, taken September 13, 2017, water sampling off Bay Beach confirmed presence of cyanotixns at concentrations more than 1,000% above safe recreational limits; and 4,000% above safe limits for drinking. Children and dogs tend to ingest water at beaches.
