RRWA Water Quality Monitoring Program – 2020/2021

Flyer of September Stream School

STREAM SCHOOL 2020

In September of 2020 the RRWA gave one in-person and 3 virtual training sessions for visual assessments and macroinvertebrate identification. On September 20 the RRWA Stream Team met at a location in South Mountain Reservation where Erin Stretz from the Watershed Institute and several NJDEP Waterhsed Ambassedors instructed the group in the art of identifying macros.

Does this sound like fun to you? It's not too late. Recordings of the 3 virtual sessions can be viewed below. So, get involved in your community! Monitor water quality in local rivers and lakes. This intensive workshop will introduce volunteers to water quality monitoring in the Rahway River Watershed. Learn streamside techniques for visual and biological assessments including the identification of benthic macroinvertebrates. Join the Rahway River Watershed Association Stream Team and become part of a community-based monitoring program.
