Utah's Citizen Water Quality Monitoring Network
Training's available this February and March
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.
