Licking County Soil & Water Stream Team Training

Licking County Soil and Water Stream Team Training : Great training for your resume. Stream Team is a Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring Program offered by Licking Soil & Water.

Community members are invited to join their team of nearly 100 volunteers committed to promoting clean water through regular stream site testing.  

A 2-hour training workshop includes information about the current state of our rivers and streams as well as findings from a recent Ohio EPA study of the Licking River Watershed.  Then through hands-on instruction, trainees learn to use water quality sampling equipment and supplies. 

Upon completion of training, participants receive a complimentary water quality test kit and agree to adopt a stream site for continued monitoring.  All collected data is submitted to Licking Soil & Water for analysis.  The gathered information provides an accurate representation of stream health now and long-term changes.

The training dates are:
