Water monitoring training sessions set
BUCKEYE LAKE - If you missed the water quality monitoring training sessions last fall, there's another opportunity to help improve Buckeye Lake's water quality.
Last October, Carl Moore of Ohio Lake Monitoring Society trained volunteers so they could become Ohio EPA Approved Level One Quality Data Collectors (QDC-One). Monitors will be providing data on primarily water clarity to Ohio EPA and other interested entities.
The data will also be used by the fledgling Buckeye Lake for Tomorrow watershed group. BLT is a partnership of individuals and organizations committed to improving water quality in the 49 square mile Buckeye Lake watershed. The group is modeled after a similar group was formed to address the deteriorating water quality at Indian Lake.
The training session is set for 9 :00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m on Saturday, June 27. Equipment and training guides will be provided. The class size is limited, so call early to reserve your space. Call George O'Donnel at (740) 928-1274. BLT is playing for the training costs and providing lunch. The QDC-One October graduates will participate in a refresher course during the afternoon session.
