For the past 18 years, volunteers have been monitoring water quality conditions across the Lake Tahoe and Truckee River watersheds, collecting data at a single point in time to better understand the area as a whole. It is a bi-state collaborative that can achieve a larger watershed approach to successful data collection.
On May 17 and 18, 2019, volunteers will once again head out and perform a variety of tests including temperature, pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, algae, and nitrogen.
On the 17th volunteers will test along the Lower Truckee River in Nevada and on May 18 for the other sites in Truckee, South Lake Tahoe and North Lake Tahoe, from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day.
Volunteers wishing to participate are invited to RSVP (http://ow.ly/Il1t30nlhmh) and join in efforts. No experience is necessary, and all are welcome to attend.
