Join the King Conservation District for an afternoon of learning about water quality monitoring. A limited number of attendees will be able to take home a free Basic Water Quality Monitoring Kit to test their own streams or ditches for four parameters: Temperature, pH, Turbidity and Dissolved Oxygen. Also, you will learn how to share your data on the monitorwater.org web site. Connect and share with other citizens in your neighborhood.
Where: Farmers Park, Enumclaw View Map
Who: Anyone interested in conducting water quality monitoring tests on their property to share via monitorwater.org and also meet other volunteers with the KCD Stream Steward Program.
Why: To learn how water quality affects stream health.
What we will do: Teach you how to use the LaMotte Basic Water Quality Kit and enter your data online. Bring your camp chair and ask questions of current KCD Stream Stewards. Find out how you can raise awareness about water quality in your neighborhood.
