Welcome to EQI’s interactive water quality map! This is a tool to display our volunteer monitoring results from streams in western North Carolina. This information would be impossible to collect without our dedicated volunteers and regional partners. In this map, VWIN chemical ratings are displayed as round points and SMIE biological ratings are displayed as square points. Discontinued monitoring sites are colored gray. Water quality ratings are color-coded by category. Click on a site to find more information about current monitoring results at that location. If you are interested in a particular stream, you may search for sites on that stream with the search bar to the right. Select from the options shown to tailor the map based on water quality rating and/or monitoring project.
