Outfall Screening Blitz
Join our Water Quality Scientists as we search for illicit pollution in our local streams and waterways! During Outfall Screening Blitz events, you will work in small a small team of staff-led teams of trained volunteers. Together in waders, you will walk through through targeted stream segments in order to identify “dry-weather discharges.” Illicit dry-weather discharges are suspicious water pollution that enter the stream from the stormwater sewer system. Community scientists like you will collect water samples at outfalls with a flowing discharge and analyze these samples for different types of pollution.
In order to participate in this volunteer opportunity, you must first take a Pollution 101 and Outfall Screening Blitz training. These classes are held monthly. Please check out calendar of events for dates. For more information you are welcome to email email@example.com.
