Saturday Stream Snapshot is back for 2021! We are looking for water chemical testing volunteers who are passionate about the health of our rivers and streams. By participating in collecting water samples from sites around the watershed or performing water chemical testing at our Water Quality Education Center you can take an active role in protecting the Little Miami.
No previous experience is needed to participate and training is provided. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in the field of water quality testing in a lab setting.
Saturday Stream Snapshot takes place on the second Saturday of each month from March-November. Water samples are collected by volunteers from around the Little Miami River watershed before 10:00 am on Saturday morning, and subsequent water chemical testing takes place at the Greenacres Water Quality Education Center from 10:30 am – 3:00 pm. Water samples are analyzed for pH, conductivity, turbidity, nitrates, total phosphorous, conductivity, optical whiteners, chlorophyll, and fecal coliform bacteria.
