Superior Seeks Volunteers To Monitor Cities Streams This Spring
This would be the perfect opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts or families who are looking for a project to do together.
The City of Superior is seeking interested volunteers to take part in their Citizen Stream Monitoring Program. The group is a partnership between the city, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and Wisconsin Extension's Water Action Volunteer program.
Those who sign up will receive all of the training and equipment needed; no prior experience is required. Volunteers will sample their assigned stream during the spring to fall season - approximately April to October. The streams will be local - one of the handful that run through city limits. A pre-application survey has been established to help volunteers determine their level of interest.
Although a variety of factors will be sampled, recorded, and studied, the following items are top of the list for organizers:
- Water temperature
- Dissolved oxygen levels
- Specific Electric Conductivity
The exact start date and all related training is still being determined - but should be announced soon. If you're interested, fill out an online application by clicking here.
