New River Water Watchers Workshop

Last Saturday a few AWRA members completed a citizen monitoring program through the National Committee for the New River.  We will be using this chemical assessment to monitor a local stream.  
Courtney taught us how to measure dissolved oxygen, pH, water clarity, and bacteria. 

Tania measures the pH through comparing color change to the reference 

Caitlin helps pour water into a the tub to measure turbidity 

Thank you all for coming out to participate in this training workshop.  Courtney will be doing a refresher course sometime in the fall before we start our monthly monitoring
