The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $333,900 to the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality to conduct ambient water quality monitoring projects for improving water quality throughout Arkansas.

Scientific data collected from these projects will be used to develop water quality standards and to determine the effects of impaired water bodies on aquatic life.
