GLEN SPEY, NY (June 29, 2015) – Join with others on July 2 at 6:00 p.m. at the Lumberland Town Hall in Glen Spey to learn how to test water quality in Sullivan County.
There is a lot of enthusiasm about the excellent quality of the streams in Sullivan County NY and the northeastern part of Pennsylvania.
As part of a large scale preservation and monitoring effort in our region, the Brodhead Watershed Association (BWA) would like to introduce you to stream watching and provide you with the equipment necessary to become stewards of your local stream.
Jackie Speicher, Streamwatch Trainer, will guide you through the BWA protocols for the stream watching program. You will review the recording of data from observational data such as water color, odor, and turbidity to using test kits that sample for pH of the water, Nitrate concentrations, and Orthophosphates.
Help is also available for questions, data issues, or a follow up program if requested.
Allow 2 hours for the program. All ages welcome. All materials belong to your group upon completion of the training program.
This program is provided free of charge through a grant from the William Penn Foundation and support from The Nature Conservancy and the Brodhead Watershed Association.
