Help us measure the water quality!
We need your help to measure the quality of our river and streams this spring and summer! Aside from collecting water samples, you will learn to measure stream flow, sample runoff from rain storms, and identify potential water quality problems. To participate, you must first attend an introductory classroom training on the field techniques and program structure in a classroom workshop. No prior knowledge is necessary. Volunteers near or willing to travel to Wayne and Livingston Counties are particularly needed.
Our first classroom training took place on Saturday, March 19, 2016. and there was a mid-season training on Saturday, June 25, 2016. Stay tuned for the date and time for next year’s training.
One or more stream sites in Washtenaw, Wayne, or Livingston Counties.
Sampling in the field requires 2 or more hours each sampling trip. Commitment of 8 sampling trips is expected of participants during the season, April through September. For those joining mid-season, a commitment of 4 to 6 sampling trips is expected of participants, July through September.
In the Fall we will announce the date and time for next year’s training.
