How Can I Become a Water Quality Monitoring Volunteer?

It’s simple – sign up!   We’re always looking for volunteers to help monitor the health of our streams, rivers, ponds and lakes.   Whether you would like to monitor once a season, once a month, or once a week, we have an opportunity for you.  Training and equipment are provided.

Our  Water Quality Monitoring Brochure describes the different types of monitoring programs and equipment that we use.  Together we can identify, track, and correct problems that might otherwise go undetected.

For more information about becoming a volunteer, contact Jean Pillo, Coordinator for The Last Green Valley Water Quality Monitoring Program, at 860 928-4948 or Jean.Pillo@comcast.net.
