RRWA Water Quality Monitoring Program – 2020/2021

STREAM SCHOOL 2020

In September of 2020 the RRWA gave one in-person and 3 virtual training sessions for visual assessments and benthic macroinvertebrate identification.

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.

Day 1 (NJ Community Monitoring, Habitat Assessments)

Day 2 (Macroinvertebrate ID)

Day 3 (Field Assessments)

 

Monitoring our waterways is important for assessing stream conditions and water quality. Understanding the health and quality of our rivers and streams helps us recommend environmental policy and protections, educate the public about how to protect and restore clean water and the environment, and work to restore ailing habitats. We use a number of methods and parameters to determine water quality and stream health.

Please take this very short survey to help us with our Stream Team recruiting efforts!
