Interactive Map of Water Quality Monitoring Sites

At present, ANS's 25 monitoring sites are located in one of the following watersheds: Little Bennett, Little Seneca, Great Seneca, Watts Branch, Rock Creek, Sligo Creek, Northwest Branch, and Paint Branch. An important task of water quality monitors is to collect and identify benthic macroinvertebrates, small organisms that dwell on the substrate and exhibit a wide range of sensitivity to pollutants and other impacts on the stream. Over time, this helps us identify stressors that disrupt or impair the stream ecosystem. This, in turn, serves as the first step in addressing problems in our streams and developing ways to improve the quality of our water resources, including drinking water.
