2011 Water Quality Season Kickoff

Posted by [email protected] on April 25, 2011 at 9:28 AM

The 2011 water quality season is set to start on Sunday May 8th.  The Ten Mile River Watershed Council collects weekly samples from Turner Reservoir at the Route 152 bridge.  Each week, volunteers measure temperature and water clarity.   Volunteers also collect bi-weekly samples for later chlorophyll analysis (which measures algae).  On designated water collection days, 3 periods spanning the monitoring season, our volunteers collect a set of water samples and immediately bring them to the Watershed Watch laboratories at the University of Rhode Island for analysis.
