Update 2023-08-25: Clean Withlacoochee River 2023-08-24.
After Valdosta’s sky-high Wednesday upstream Withlacoochee River results, WWALS got much better results upstream and down for Thursday samples on the Withlacoochee River plus the Little River. Even the usual problem creeks, Crawford and Sugar, were pretty clean. WWALS Alapaha River Wednesday results were very clean.
We are still short-handed for WWALS volunteer water quality testers.
Maybe you’d like to become one.
There’s a testing training coming up August 25th at Suwannee River State Park:
There has been no rain today to wash more contamination into the rivers and creeks.
We already rescheduled tomorrow’s Withlacoochee River paddle: Re-reschedule Retry Sugar Creek to Troupville Chainsaw Cleanup, Withlacoochee River 2023-09-02.
But so far as we can see in the test results, happy swimming, fishing, and paddling on the rivers this weekend.
The most recent results we have from Valdosta are for Wednesday upstream and Friday before last downstream.
For Wednesday Valdosta got way too-high results for US 41, GA 133, and US 84.
Thanks to WWALS testers Cindy and David Vedas for testing Continue reading
