Utah Water Watch Class at the Swaner EcoCenter
The Swaner EcoCenter, 1258 Center Dr. at Kimball Junction, will present a free Utah water watch class beginning on Saturday, May 25. The Utah State University Water Quality Extension provides the training, support and equipment to empower volunteers to be stewards of their local water bodies. Water Watch is a free program that allows for the public to help monitor water quality in Utah's lakes and streams. Volunteers monitor a lake or stream at least once a month for seven months a year and report the data online. The information is shared with water managers to help protect and manage watersheds. Call (435) 797-2580 to register for the class. For more information, visit http://extension.usu.edu/waterquality/htm/citizen_monitoring/uww.
