About us

The following WWKY Organizational Chart shows our Trained Samplers as our top priority, with the underlying leadership expected to provide the support that samplers need. A statewide WWKY Board of Directors (pink) provides general, consistent guidance to the six Basin-Specific Steering Committees or Boards (orange). The basin leadership works with the Sampling Event Coordinator, Lab Managers and our Science Advisors (yellow) to ensure that our sampling events are carried out efficiently and accurately (with some occasional glitches now and then!). And, in some basins, Area Coordinators facilitate communications with samplers and help with transport of water samples to the labs for analysis.
