Thank you to the volunteers who collect 8 water samples every Saturday and to Brandt for testing the water every Monday producing timely and quality results. As senator Jack Reed recently stated, “what gets measured, gets managed” and we are doing the right thing each week measuring nutrients level in the watershed. Thank you!
Check out our weekly watershed results from July 14th. You will notice there is no data for two of the locations. This is due to lack of precipitation causing these two locations to dry out. You will also notice there is a particularly high phosphorus count at Bailey Brook. This could be due to excessive fertilizer runoff or urban runoff. A few ways that you can help reduce phosphorus pollution is by using phosphorus-free fertilizer on your lawn and gardens and sweeping your grass clippings or keeping them on your lawn instead of blowing them onto the streets and sidewalks.
Weekly watershed results are in! Reach out TODAY to become a citizen scientist and get involved in one of our water quality testing programs!
Last weeks watershed results are in! Every week our team of citizen science volunteers takes 8 samples in the watershed and our back-office team tests those samples for nitrogen and phosphorus to check the health of our watershed.
