Nars National Info
National Aquatic Resource Surveys Workshop
November 1-5, 2021 (RESCHEDULED)
We are pleased to announce that CTIC is coordinating a National Aquatic Resource Surveys (NARS) Workshop under a Cooperative Agreement with EPA’s NARS program. The workshop will be held in Chicago Illinois, November 2-4, 2021. (November 1 and 5 are fly in/fly out days).
NARS is a collaborative program between EPA, states and tribes designed to assess the quality of the nation's coastal waters, lakes and reservoirs, rivers and streams, and wetlands using a statistical survey design. This workshop will cover topics relevant to all four waterbody types and the NARS program generally. We are working with our state/tribal/EPA Advisory Committee to develop the agenda for the workshop. Once the agenda once is finalized, it will be posted on this webpage.
This event is being planned for in-person attendance and will be live-streamed to a home audience for those that cannot travel. This event follows on others hosted by CTIC including a national workshop in Silver Spring, MD in 2017 and one in Denver, CO in 2019.
