Bucket surfing the Withlacoochee River 2020-05-01

That bucket needs to be clean before I get a water quality testing sample out of it.


Here’s a YouTube video and it’s on facebook:

Bucket surfing the Withlacoochee River 2020-05-01
Video by John S. Quarterman for WWALS Watershed Coalition (WWALS),
at Clyattville-Nankin Road Bridge over the Withlacoochee River, May 1, 2020.

Look how high the river is. 18 feet (101.4 NAVD88) on the Quitman (US 84) USGS Gauge. That’s still above the 99.0 NAVD88 Action Stage, but well below the 104.2 NAVD88 Minor Flood stage.


Look how blue the sky is, after a few weeks of less air and road traffic.

Our Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail (WLRWT) signs are still there.

And the yellow WWALS Caution bacterial contamination sign.

I doubt anybody is going to wade out there to steal any of them.

More pictures of this and other stream locations in Brooks County, Georgia, are on the WWALS website.

Testing results to come after they finish cooking.

    “Cooking”, indeed!!! Don’t put that E coli into your oven!!! (j/k) But it’s “incubating”, Mr. Riverkeeper!!! Lest someone take you at your word, and try making a little “Dirty Water Stew”… !

      I would have thought you would know better than to put it in your stove, Ms. Whelpton. -jsq
