If you have an interest in learning more about the water quality in a nearby stream, you may want to consider becoming a volunteer water quality monitor. The Saturday Stream Snapshot (SSS) is a volunteer program run by Greenacres Foundation that researches the health of the Little Miami River watershed. Saturday Stream Snapshot takes place on the second Saturday of each month from March-November (11 am – 2 pm).
Volunteers are able to participate by collecting water samples from sites along the Little Miami or any of its tributaries and/or performing water quality analysis at the Water Quality Education Center in Milford. No previous water testing or lab experience is needed to participate! To learn more about the SSS program, please contact Emily Pickett at firstname.lastname@example.org or (513) 370-3662.
Clermont SWCD is proud to report that we are the recipient of a watershed management grant from the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The grant will provide nearly $40,000 in the coming year to help with projects in the East Fork Little Miami River watershed, and may be renewed for two more years.
The district will consider various projects to address water quality of urban storm water runoff and hazardous alga blooms (HAB’s) that have affected Harsha Lake at East Fork State Park the last few years. A portion of the funding will be dedicated to Brown, Clinton and Highland SWCDs for activities in their portions of the watershed. Check our web site or follow us on Facebook to follow our progress.
