FREE Lecture with Geologist Rupert Rossetti
July 30, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Rupert Rossetti, Octoraro Watershed Association (OWA), will provide an introduction to Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring in the Octoraro, focusing on the What, When, Where, Why, & Who.
Rupert has been monitoring in the southern end of the watershed since 2005. The Octoraro Watershed Association, as part of the Octoraro Source Water Collaborative and with support and encouragement from the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, the Lancaster Clean Water Partners and the Chester Water Authority, initiated a monitoring program in the Upper Octoraro in 2017. OWA currently fields 3 teams of volunteers who sample 14 sites across the 208 square mile watershed every 4 weeks.
