AAS Bacterial Monitoring workshop
|When:||Fri, June 13, 5:30pm – 8:30pm|
|What:||E. coli is an indicator organism that can be used to assess the health of our waters and can help identify possible sources of pollution. This workshop will focus on proper collection of a water sample; transfer of sample onto plates that will be incubated and proper interpretation of results. Volunteers who successfully perform the bacterial monitoring and pass the written test with a score of 90% or better will be considered a QA/QC volunteer for one year.|
AAS Chemical Monitoring workshop
|When:||Sat, June 14, 9am – 1pm|
|What:||This free hands-on workshop is designed to train volunteers to evaluate local water quality. We will focus on the chemical monitoring methods including water/air temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen and clarity, conductivity and salinity. This workshop is also appropriate if you are more inland and intend to monitor a freshwater waterway. Volunteers who successfully perform the chemical monitoring and pass the written test with a score of 80% or better will be considered a QA/QC volunteer for one year.|
