A group of volunteers has been collecting data on local streams monthly since April 2014. This data will create a baseline to help us understand water quality and make decisions. We test streamside for pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, and turbidity and send a sample to Heidelberg Lab for nutrient analysis. We also look at stream biology and habitat. Training provided to interested volunteers!
The Upper Maumee Watershed Partnership (UMWP) is excited to present a Watershed Action Plan that has been in the works for over 3 years! Many dedicated volunteers representing the community sat on the steering committee to complete the plan. It contains 400+ pages detailing the watershed and makes recommendations for water quality improvements. The next meetings are Sept 4 and Nov 6, details at www.uppermaumeewatershed.com.
