We would also like to have a STANDING CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS, inviting all those interested in volunteering to please contact the Kidder Township EAC.
The Kidder Township Environmental Advisory Council partnered with Trout Unlimited to provide training to Citizen Scientists to learn how to monitor local streams for water quality.
Known as the Kidder Township Clean Water Keepers, volunteers will monitor selected streams monthly to keep track of sediment deposits, stream width, pH, TDS (total dissolved solids- too much of these can clog gills and raise the temperature of the water), turbidity (cloudiness of the water), temperature and conductivity (measures the water’s ability to pass an electrical current; more particles in the water lead to higher conductivity).
Collected data will be shared with TU’s National Database and Kidder Township’s EAC will keep spreadsheets to monitor any changes in the streams in the coming years.
