Chemical and Bacteriological water testing training for Georgia Adopt-A-Stream standards by our local trainers.
If you’d like to get trained and do testing for WWALS, please fill out this form:
Yes, training is difficult in this pandemic situation, but Georgia Adopt-A-Stream has worked out methods, mostly online. With last year’s generous grant from Georgia Power WWALS has purchased enough testing kits so that trainees can have one to use during the training.
In the form, remember to say where you can test. We need testers pretty much everywhere:
- In Georgia on the Withlacoochee and Alapaha Rivers, on Okapilco and Crooked and Piscola Creeks in Brooks County, on Onemile Branch, Twomile Branch, and Sugar Creek in and near Valdosta, and upstream on the Little River in Brooks, Cook, and Colquitt Counties, including where we already have testers, because everybody needs time off.
- In Florida on the Withlacoochee, Alapaha, Suwannee, and Santa Fe Rivers, and on creeks that run into them, especially in Madison, Hamilton, Suwannee, and Lafayette Counties.
For the testing story so far, see Current Situation of Water Quality Testing, Suwannee River Basin 2020-08-02.
For much more context and recent testing results, see https://wwals.net/issues/testing/.
We look forward to you getting trained and joining our testing team!
