Monitoring Council Logo

The Healthy Streams Partnership (HSP) is devoted to monitoring and assessing the quality of California’s stream and river ecosystems and bringing the resulting information to decision makers and the public via the internet. A major intent of the HSP is to promote the protection of California’s healthy streams and the restoration of threatened and impaired streams by informing and encouraging changes in present perspectives and resource management decision and actions. Based on recommendations of the HSP and guidance from the Monitoring Council, the Healthy Streams web portal was developed to present information about the extent and condition of California’s stream and river ecosystem resources and linked from the Monitoring Council’s My Water Quality website. As one of seven Monitoring Council workgroups, the HSP is exploring models for developing indices that translate the various data types into a report card format that provides an assessment of overall stream and river condition. The HSP is coordinating with the U.S.EPA’s Healthy Watershed Initiative, a nationwide effort to identify and protect healthy watersheds.
