Grass-Roots Program for Water Quality Sampling by Streamkeeper Volunteers in Local Creeksheds
“In Metro Vancouver, groups such as the North Shore Streamkeepers (NSSK) are making a difference. NSSK collaboration with the District of North Vancouver underpins a water quality monitoring program. The District purchased state-of-the-art equipment and trained 10 volunteers who conduct sampling close to their neighbourhood,” states Richard Boase, Section Manager for Environmental Sustainability (Operations) at the District of North Vancouver.
“In the field part of the Dave Derrick workshop, when we are on-site at Shelly Creek, we will have the District’s YSI EXO multi probe on hand to demonstrate how to collect water quality data. We would then let attendees try the equipment while we talk about how we train North Shore Streamkeeper volunteers to monitor water quality in streams.”
