This program is in place to regularly monitor our creeks, especially after high rainfalls, to see if any levels put the community at risk. Local grant money is being used to pay lab costs on weekly collection from 5 sites on Long Island Creek and Marsh Creek for one year.
Beth Faircloth, Dara Epstein, Libba Pickren, Alan Toney, Lindsey Sewell, and Phil Britt are doing weekly or monthly collections and takes them to the Upper Chattahoochee River Keeper’s (UCR) lab for testing.
This map shows our water sampling plan. The red indicates and active sampling site and yellow indicates a desire to sample the site and a need for a volunteer. https://goo.gl/maps/tpGJrCCKTyq
