Citizen Monitoring: Educating and Engaging Citizens through Monitoring Activities
Utah Water Watch (UWW) is a water quality education and data collection program that seeks to increase awareness about the importance of water quality and promote stewardship of Utah’s aquatic resources.
We hope you all had a great holiday season, spring and the 2017 monitoring season is right around the corner! Check out this quarters' newsletter featuring volunteer of the Year 2016 Raymond Li, new opportunities, training events, a summary of 2016 at Utah Water Watch and a sneak peak at upcoming Watershed Reports.
Training available this February and March 2017
The Water Quality Extension has teamed up with the Division of Water Quality to deploy scopes and test kits - used to verify potential algal blooms - at extension offices statewide. Citizens, volunteers and others may bring samples to the scopes to be tested for HAB presence. We're recruiting volunteers to use these scopes to analyze samples. We recommend both attending the online seminar - hosted by NOAA - and an in person training.
