The Pend Oreille Riverkeeper group is looking for volunteers to help with a lake-wide water quality monitoring program.
The goal is to produce reliable, scientifically credible data from water samples collected from multiple locations throughout Lake Pend Oreille and the Pend Oreille River on a monthly basis.
Measurement will include water temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations, bacterial levels, and other parameters that indicate the health of these water bodies.
Volunteers will be trained and given the supplies.
This is a great project for people and familes who live around the lake.
