Join us for a workshop on stream water sampling using AAS Chemical testing techniques employing Quality Assurance/ Quality Control (QA/QC). Trainers will provide hands-on monitoring instruction in Chemical modules, and participants will practice taking samples out in the field in addition to a classroom presentation. To become certified, participants must pass a written and practical test at the end of the workshop.
When is the workshop?

The Chemical Monitoring Workshop is designed to teach volunteers/citizen scientists about basic stream water chemistry and how to conduct various chemical testing using hand-held field equipment. The basic set of tests includes dissolved oxygen, conductivity, pH, and temperature. Volunteers who collect data with 10% accuracy and pass the written test with a score of 80% or better will be certified to conduct chemical monitoring.
