In 2006, The North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board with support from the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency and the California Non-point Source Program proposed a contract to facilitate the development of the coordinated monitoring and assessment plan within the Klamath Basin. The rationale behind the support of the project were to: 1) create a comprehensive and consistent monitoring strategy; 2) develop effective and efficient way of using resources; 3) generate a holistic picture on the health of the basin; and 4) create interagency partnerships to improve the health of the basin. The Klamath Watershed Institute, an affiliate of Humboldt State University, was chosen as the neutral party to facilitate and develop an interagency water quality organization.
The Klamath Watershed Institute, in collaboration with members of the Klamath Basin Monitoring Program, formerly the Klamath Basin Water Quality Monitoring Coordination Group, have developed a basin-wide water quality monitoring and coordination plan, data portal, communications plan, and a plan for long-term sustainability for KBMP. The Plan entitled, Klamath Basin Water Quality Monitoring Plan, is a collaborative and consensus based effort involving a diverse group of regional water quality monitoring organizations throughout the Klamath Basin.
