Water Quality Monitoring with Mill Creek Alliance

Organization: Mill Creek Alliance

Volunteer Monitors Needed!

This is the 8th year the Mill Creek Alliance Water Quality Monitoring Program has monitored the Mill Creek Watershed. Our first 2020 sampling event is March 14th.  We collect water samples and analyze them for 8 chemical parameters at a lab to help us identify and address local water quality issues. Monitoring takes place the second Saturday of each month from March through November. This program is VITAL for monitoring the health of the creek and relies completely on committed volunteers like you! The WQMP currently samples 52 sites throughout the Mill Creek watershed.   Volunteer jobs include sample collecting or lab analysis.  No experience is required. Please email Anne at alyon@themillcreekalliance.org if you are a new volunteer interested in joining this program!

If you are interested in becoming a Mill Creek Water Quality Monitoring volunteer, please plan to attend one of these training events.  These training events will provide you with all the information you need to become a sample collector and/or lab analyst.  The February 29th event is on Saturday from 3-5 pm at the Urban Artifact Taproom at 1660 Blue Rock St, Cincinnati, OH 45223 (right next door to the Mill Creek Alliance Northside office).  If you cannot make this event, the training will be repeated Wednesday March 4th from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, also at the Urban Artifact.  The event is free but registration is required.
