Adopt-A-Stream Bacteria Monitoring Workshop

·1 min read

Jul. 8—Cobb County Water System will have Adopt-A-Stream Bacteria Monitoring Workshop on July 20 from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

The Bacterial Monitoring Workshop will teach volunteers how to monitor E. coli levels in their streams. E. coli is an indicator organism that is often used to assess water quality. Monitoring levels of E. coli can help identify possible sources of pollution.

This workshop will focus on proper collection of a water sample; transfer of sample onto plates that will be incubated, and proper interpretation of results. Volunteers who successfully perform the bacterial monitoring and pass the written test with a score of 90% or better will be considered a QA/QC volunteer for one year.
