Bacteria Monitoring for Safe & Healthy Waters (Webcast)

August 31, 2016: 1:00PM to August 10, 2016: 2:30PM

This free Center for Watershed Protection webcast highlights lessons from the recently released, Safe Waters, Healthy Waters: A Guide for Citizen Groups on Bacteria Monitoring in Local Waterways. The guide provides step-by-step instructions to create a customized bacteria monitoring program, methods to investigate potential pollutant sources, and resources for putting collected data to use. It focuses especially on human sewage and monitoring techniques to identify specific sources of sewage. The webcast will also feature success stories coming out of Surfrider Foundation and Hudson Riverkeeper’s bacteria testing programs.
