Protecting the Bay

NEW Water's Aquatic Monitoring Program (AMP) monitors and patrols the waters of NE Wisconsin. Samples are taken from 34 different stations throughout the Fox River, East River, and the Bay of Green Bay to monitor the quality of our waters. These samples are analyzed in NEW Water's state-certified laboratory.
