Conecuh National Forest Water Monitoring Workshop

February 19 - February 20

Alabama Water Watch, in partnership with the USDA Forest Service, is excited to announce the launch of a new water monitoring project in the National Forests in Alabama!

This project’s goal is to promote citizens to discover the national forests in Alabama…by monitoring their waters!  Volunteer citizens will gather water chemistry and bacteriological monitoring data on select stream locations within the National Forests in Alabama.

Three, 2-day water quality monitoring workshops will be held in January through February 2020 for the Tuskegee, Bankhead, and Conecuh National Forests.

Each workshop will cover information related to the water environment, forests and watershed health, pollution, water quality standards, and data management. Workshop participants will be trained and certified in AWW Water Chemistry and Bacteriological Monitoring.

During Day 2 of each workshop, participants will head outdoors to conduct monitoring practices and visit pre-selected monitoring sites on the National Forests.
