Workshop Description: Become a certified volunteer water quality monitor! Learn how to test physical and chemical characteristics of water to determine pollution sources and long-term trends in water quality. Six variables (pH, Total Hardness, Total Alkalinity, Air & Water Temperature, Dissolved Oxygen, Turbidity/Secchi Disk Depth) are measured with a customized test kit, and results can be compared with water quality standards that define conditions for healthy waterbodies.
There will be a short break for lunch. Please bring a sack lunch and water bottle. If the weather is good, we will be outdoors for field work. Wear clothes and shoes you don’t mind getting muddy.
