Stream Monitoring Training

April 9, 2022 - Panther State Forest, McDowell County, WV:

West Virginia DEP's Save Our Streams and Kentucky Division of Water's Big Sandy Watershed Watch joined forces for a historic first joint training seminar for Friends of the Tug Fork River volunteers.

Our volunteers learned water sampling techniques, water chemistry, and macro-invertibate collection and identification.

This is the first step in a very long process to improve water quality in our river.
