Water Quality Testing Program

A sensitive park monitoring program takes place in as many as 18 locations twice yearly. It provides specific feedback on the effectiveness of the PP&R IPM program at protecting water quality, providing direct accountability for practices most likely to influence water quality such as fertilizer applications and pesticide use. PP&R led the way in instituting this testing program, the first for a park system in the region.
