Watershed Watch training in Whitesburg

Posted by Evan Smith, OSM/VISTA

I think perhaps i didn’t emphasize this enough in the previous post about WW…

On Saturday, April 7th there’s going to be a Watershed Watch training in Whitesburg at Southeast Community College from 9am-1pm. This Phase I training will give volunteers the equipment and training that they need to take water samples that will be lab analyzed and accepted as quality data by the Kentucky Division of Water. At all of this is at no cost to the volunteer and typically only requires a few hours, 3 or 4 weekends a year… (see the schedule in the post below!)

Trainings cross basin line so even if you’re interested in sampling in the Cumberland or Big Sandy basins, this training will work.

There has been a large upsurge in local Watershed Watch involvement in the past year and half and we hope to continue this.

Current volunteers! Please get friends and family involved. It’s always good to have a backup in case you get sick the weekend of a sampling event… We’re also working on getting a Phase II (biological assessment) training set for this June (9 or 16?)

Please register by Thursday April 5th so that we can know how many kits we will need.
