the Board - a newsletter from the Methods and Data Comparability Board
NEMI is being developed under the direction
of the Methods and
Data Comparability Board, a partnership of water-quality experts from Federal
agencies, States, Tribes, municipalities, industry, and private organizations.
The Methods Board is chartered under the National
Water Quality Monitoring Council, whose mission since its charter in May
1997 is to coordinate and provide guidance on implementation of the voluntary,
integrated, nationwide monitoring strategy.
