BRWP volunteers have been getting trained, by the Ohio Chapter of the Sierra Club, to do water sampling, as part of the Ohio Water Sentinel Program. The Clean Water Act requires states to test their waterways regularly. Unfortunately, the Ohio EPA and the Ohio DNR do not have the capacity to monitor all of Ohio’s 199,000 miles of rivers and streams. Thus it is critical for citizen scientists to record the quality of our water and keep a watchful eye. The Water Sentinel Program provides water monitoring kits, training, and sample analysis to participating groups and individuals who care about clean water.
