Volunteer Training Announced – Citizen Stream Monitors Needed!

IOWATER Training Announced

Do you ever wonder about the condition of the water in your neighborhood stream or a favorite fishing spot? The IOWATER program is just the opportunity for you!

IOWATER is a program dedicated to teaching volunteers how to assess the health of their local streams and rivers. Volunteers receive an in-depth training to learn how to properly conduct water testing, and receive all the equipment they need to safely and accurately measure water quality.sample

No experience or background in science is necessary – just an interest in spending a little time documenting stream health on a regular basis. Your data will contribute to the growing body of information being collected by volunteers across the state of Iowa to help understand and prioritize water pollution concerns in our rivers and streams. More importantly, the information will help with implementing solutions to address those concerns, using science as the basis for conservation efforts.
