We are currently looking for volunteers to help us during the 2015 Water Quality Monitoring season.
JRA needs your help as a citizen scientist, collecting water samples and recording data to track the environmental health of the River. JRA will introduce you to the types of harmful bacteria, and provide an overview of sampling methods and analysis. Volunteers will also learn to collect turbidity and temperature data from the field.
Sampling will occur weekly from May to September and data will be made available to the public on JRA's James River Watch website (thejamesriver.org/jrw)
No monitoring or science background is required. JRA will assign volunteers to sampling teams and work with each volunteer to help establish a sampling schedule that fits individual schedules or availability.
