Volunteers Needed for the Chemical Monitoring Program

With the Conservation District’s mission to promote clean waterways in Prince William County, the Water Quality Monitoring program gets an additional YSI water meter to collect more chemical data.
This program follows the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) data standards and supports the Chesapeake Bay Monitoring Cooperative (CMC) database with the following parameters: conductivity, pH, temperature, Dissolved Oxygen (DO) and turbidity.

‘One-Time-Pond Cleanup’ Program

This new ‘One-Time-Pond Cleanup” program under the Conservation District is to prevent County storm water ponds from becoming trash mines.
Storm water ponds cleanup is a great challenge, especially with the presence of vegetation. This ‘One-Time-Pond Cleanup’ program will promote more ponds cleanup in the fall and spring.
Volunteers are welcome to help improve the ecological health of any pond of interest in the community with a one-time cleanup with no other commitments.
The Conservation District is working on getting kayak(s) to support the needs of this new program.
To adopt a waterway or pond, contact waterquality@pwswcd.orgVideo on Plastic Pollution Awareness.
