Volunteers conduct chemical and bacterial analysis of the water in the Wolf Bay Watershed. Consistent sampling over several weeks or months can determine the general condition and trend of the water quality at a particular site.
Water Monitor Training is conducted by Alabama Water Watch. Visit Alabama Water Watch for additional information and to register for a class.
Chemical monitoring measures the levels of dissolved oxygen (DO), jH, alkalinity, turbidity, salinity, and water temperature.
Bacteriological monitoring has become an increasingly important part of AWW over the past few years. AWW was one of the first citizen monitoring programs in the United States to receive EPA endorsement for bacteriological monitoring. WBWW has been at the forefront of bacteriological monitoring in the country.
