There is a snapshot water quality monitoring event on Saturday, September 21st. Volunteers are asked to help collect water samples and data as part of this event. Since 2002, a variety of snapshot samplings have been conducted across Iowa. A snapshot sampling is when multiple sites throughout a geographic area, Dry Run Creek Watershed, are sampled within a short period of time (three hours). A snapshot provides a picture of water quality at one point in time.
The event will be on Saturday, September 21st from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Cedar Falls Tourism and Visitors Bureau, 6510 Hudson Road. This event will take place rain or shine (so please dress accordingly). You may get wet while collecting data so please wear old shoes, sandals, or bring boots or waders if you would prefer.
For information or to RSVP, please contact Ashley Kittle the Watershed Conservationist for the Black Hawk Soil and Water Conservation District at 319.296.6262 or Ashley Kittle. The following link provides some information about the upcoming Water Quality Monitoring Event.
