TRWA had it’s annual Sampling Team Volunteer Training the last Saturday in February (2/24/18). Once again we have a very enthusiastic and dedicated team of volunteers for the 2018 sampling season!
The work of these Guardians of the Watershed is crucial to our ability to understand what is happening with pollutant levels and water quality in the Taunton River and its tributaries. Most of the wastewater treatment plants in the watershed are undergoing upgrades to better remove nutrients (particularly nitrogen). Tracking the current river condition and future conditions as these upgrade go online is important for a River like the Taunton which is a high percentage of treated wastewater effluent at critical summer low flow.
We owe a debt of gratitude to our Sampling Team Volunteers!
