Vermont Integrated Watershed Information System
Welcome to IWIS, The VTDEC-Watershed Management Division’s new online data portal for water quality information. Here you can access water quality and chemistry testing information from throughout Vermont. Users may access data in one of two ways.

If you are new to IWIS, you may want to check out the User Guide.
Site Search allows for a Text based search the Division Database of Monitoring Sites. This will search by Waterbody Name, Town, Location Description, and a variety of other IDs. From there you will have access to a variety of reports for the found sites.
A map based tool that will display the Divisions Monitoring sites, including the type of data (macroinvertebrates, fish, chemistry, habitat), and the most recently color-coded assessment for that type of data. Sites will not be visible until you zoom in. The Atlas is a powerful tool and can display a great deal of Agency geographical information. New users of the Atlas should refer to ANR’s orientation video to understand the full functionality of the tool.
