Wild Virginia is hosting this one-day training for volunteers to learn how to properly conduct water quality monitoring on streams in Virginia. Trout Unlimited (TU) will teach you how to conduct chemical monitoring on water samples, measure stream flow, test water temperatures and turbidity and conduct visual assessments.
We need monitoring help in Highland and Bath counties in the Upper Back Creek and Upper Jackson River as well as the Cowpasture River watershed. These are priority watersheds that could be negatively impacted by pipelines.
By becoming a water quality monitor, you can protect our forests and drinking water. No prior experience necessary, but a serious commitment to ongoing monitoring once per month is expected.
