You can help find out what is getting into our rivers, springs, and wells beyond sewage spills: fertilizer nitrates, livestock, wildlife, septic tanks, other. We also want to follow up after sewage spills, because the limited testing required by states doesn’t tell us how far the spill went.
If you can come to Live Oak in late January 2019 for Florida water quality testing training, it’s noon, Monday, January 21, 2019, at Suwannee River State Park. Be sure to fill out the google form above so we will know how many.
If you can do regular testing in Georgia, stay tuned for our next quarterly Georgia water quality testing training, which will be similar to this one from September. Those of you who already got trained, you know we’re starting testing in Georgia.
Many other parts of water quality testing differ between Georgia and Florida, but water collection for bacterial testing is the same, and WWALS already has gloves and Whirl-Paks.
