Stream Temperature Monitoring

Sport Fish Restoration Program logo     

In 2013 the Bureau of Freshwater Fisheries established an ambient stream temperature monitoring network on streams having trout fisheries that are recreationally important or of conservation interest. The temperature data collected will be used to assess current temperature conditions, evaluate long term trends, determine if ambient water quality is consistent with NJDEP's Surface Water Quality Standards (see page 45 of SWQS, N.J.A.C. 7:9B), and aid in the management of coldwater (trout) fisheries inhabiting these streams.

Integral to the establishment of this monitoring network was the development of a quality assurance plan that complied with NJDEP's regulations concerning the certification of laboratories and environmental measurements under N.J.A.C. 7:18-1 et seq. A Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) for Ambient Stream Water and Air Temperature Monitoring was prepared and subsequently approved by NJDEP's Office of Quality Assurance in July 2013. This certification is renewed annually.
