Utilization Studies and Residual Measurements


The intent of this interagency monitoring guide is to provide the basis for consistent, uniform, and standard utilization studies and residual measurements that are economical, repeatable, statistically reliable, and technically adequate. While this guide is not all inclusive, it does include the primary study methods used across the West. An omission of a particular sampling method does not mean that the method is not valid in specific locations; it simply means that it is not widely used or recognized throughout the western states. (see Section V.E, Other Methods.)
