Event description

Description

The South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream (AAS) program is a great way to get involved in the community and ensure our waterways are safe for everyone. Certified volunteers select a site in their community to monitor monthly with kits that are provided free of charge. AAS focuses on three water quality parameters: Chemical, Bacterial, and Biological. Chemical parameters include dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, and conductivity. The biological health of the stream is estimated by collecting living stream organisms known as aquatic macroinvertebrates. The data collected is then uploaded onto the SC Adopt-a-Stream website.

This training will provide classroom and hands on instruction for volunteers on how to:

• Select an appropriate monitoring site
• Use equipment properly and best storage practices
• Collect samples and test surface water quality
• Enter data and determine river conditions over time
• Practice safety in the field at all times!

If you register for this workshop be prepared to stay the entire length of the course and pass an exam at the end. As long as you participate throughout the day the exam should not be a problem!
