Any consideration of risk in water quality monitoring must be placed in a framework of the objectives defined for monitoring. Actual determination of risk is based upon the likelihood (probability) of events, e.g., missing a violation of an important water quality standard, and the consequences of those events. Risk in water quality monitoring is associated not only with different aspects of data collection but also with data processing and analysis to provide the required information. The following sections discuss the consideration of risk and reliability with respect to objectives of monitoring. Within this framework, various components of risk are assessed as they relate to data collection, processing, and analysis.
