Phase I Introductory Workshop: Logistics, Field Chemistry and Grab Sampling
This 3-4 hour introductory training workshop provides participants with an understanding of how the Watershed Watch organization functions and what is involved in participating as a sampler. Specific instruction is provided on assessing certain field chemistry characteristics of water, as well as how to properly collect a “grab sample” for analysis at a certified laboratory.

2021 Training Events to be scheduled soon!

Sampling events

BSWW organizes annual sampling events in May, July and September during which our volunteers assess field chemistry and collect water samples for E coli analysis. During the fall sampling event, some samplers are given the opportunity to collect samples for nutrient and/or metals analysis.

2021 Sampling Dates:

  • May 7 or 8

  • July 9 or 10

  • September 10 or 11
