NEW U.S. Forest Service Water Monitoring Project

Alabama Water Watch, in partnership with the USDA Forest Service, is excited to announce the launch of a new water quality monitoring project in the National Forests in Alabama!

This project’s goal is to promote citizens to discover the national forests in Alabama…by monitoring their waters!  Volunteer citizens will gather water chemistry and bacteriological monitoring data on select stream locations within the National Forest in Alabama.

Three, 2-day water quality monitoring workshops will be held in January through February 2020 for the Tuskegee, Bankhead, and Conecuh National Forests.

Each workshop will cover information related to the water environment, forests and watershed health, pollution, and water quality standards. Workshop participants will be trained and certified in AWW Water Chemistry and Bacteriological Monitoring. During Day 2 of each workshop, participants will head outdoors to conduct monitoring practices and visit pre-selected monitoring sites on the National Forests.
