The Ohio Water Sentinel Program is looking for volunteers to help restore, improve and protect Ohio’s waterways. The Sierra Club will provide interested parties with the necessary education to perform this vital function. The Sierra Club will host this training 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 26 at the Way Public Library, Conference Room C/D, 101 E Indiana Ave. in Perrysburg. An optional hands-on one-hour training will be offered in the afternoon at the river, weather permitting.
The Clean Water Act requires states to test their waterways regularly, but Ohio does not have the capacity to monitor all of its 199,000 miles of rivers and streams. That makes it critical for citizen scientists to assist in this task.
Questions on the volunteer water quality monitoring program can be directed to Ann Keefe, Sierra Club, at 419-619-4436 or email at Ann.Keefe@sierraclub.org.
