Technical Support Consultant

The San Juan Bay Estuary Partnership (Estuario) seeks a senior level individual or entity with the technical expertise to support and enhanced the water quality monitoring program, systematize and unite environmental data, conduct spatial and temporal analysis, support the development of communication and presentation data tools such as a data dashboard, and develop reports associated with the Regional Collaborative Water Quality Monitoring efforts. The water quality data collected constitutes an important component of the Estuarine Environmental Indicators of the San Juan Bay Estuary.

The Corporation for the Conservation of the San Juan Bay Estuary is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that operates the San Juan Bay Estuary Partnership, or Estuario. Established in 1994, we are the only tropical and non-continental location within the National Estuary Program (NEP) under Section 320 of the Clean Water Act. The Estuario operates as a partnership committed to their collective responsibility to restore and conserve the waters and associated ecosystems of the San Juan Bay Estuary and its watershed as a sustainable axis of social and economic development. Estuario’s work is guided by a master restoration plan known as the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) for the San Juan Bay Estuary.

The Estuario implements a water quality monitoring program since 2008 which follows an EPA-approved Quality Assurance Project Plan. This long-term water quality monitoring is supported by certified citizen scientists lead by Estuario water monitoring field coordinator. The monitoring efforts consist of collecting and analyzing water samples (for fecal enterococcus, nitrate + nitrite, oil and grease, and total phosphorus, pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature, specific conductance, turbidity, and water column transparency) in 26 stations within the estuary system and tributaries.  Through this monitoring effort, Estuario evaluates the effectiveness of implemented CCMP actions and evaluates natural and human-induced impacts to the system.  Water quality data are provided to the public through the SJBE webpage (https://estuario.org/calidad-de-agua/).  Furthermore, the data is used to provide scientifically based information to the public, government, and academia.

Tracking progress towards established water quality targets throughout the SJBE system requires consistent water quality monitoring, together with data management, analysis, synthesis, and reporting.  Enhanced data collection, analysis and reporting will also be needed to quantify baseline water quality conditions prior to the construction of anticipated infrastructure projects in the Caño Martín Peña and Hato Rey/Río Piedras basins, be able to track water quality changes following the construction of those projects.


The potential service provider will be requested to perform the following tasks:

1.     Collating, analyzing, summarizing and synthesizing water quality data sets collected in recent decades to document water quality conditions, spatial patterns and temporal trends;

2.     Developing and submitting the quarterly reports documenting the Collaborative Water Quality Monitoring Efforts;

3.     Bring technical support to the Regional Collaborative Water Quality Monitoring network. This includes, but is not limited to, including data collection, management, analysis, synthesis and reporting.

4.     Developing and implementing a comprehensive long-term monitoring program to replace the short-term interim program.  The long-term program will be designed to provide the data needed to track water quality status and future trends; track progress toward living resource goals; and evaluate the Partnership’s progress in providing the water quality conditions needed to achieve its living-resource-based environmental goals.

5.     Provide the technical and scientific expertise to develop communication and presentation data tools such as a data dashboard, score cards, among others.
