Talladega National Forest Water Monitoring Workshop

Cheaha State Park, 19644 AL-281, Delta, AL 36258

Alabama Water Watch, in partnership with the USDA Forest Service, is excited to expand our water monitoring project in National Forests in Alabama by conducting a workshop in the Talladega National Forest.

This project’s goal is to promote citizens to discover the National Forests in Alabama by monitoring their waters. Volunteer monitors will gather water chemistry and bacteriological monitoring data on select stream locations within the National Forests in Alabama.
This workshop will have virtual and in-person components and will cover information related to the water environment, forests and watershed health, pollution, water quality standards, and data management. Workshop participants will be trained and certified in AWW Water Chemistry and Bacteriological Monitoring.
This workshop will consist of:
1. A 1-hour Kickoff Virtual Meeting (via Zoom) on Thursday, September 16, 2021 – Time TBD

2. Self-paced, online coursework for AWW Bacteriological Monitoring and AWW Water Chemistry Monitoring (to be completed during the 2 weeks prior to the Field Day)

3. A Field Day at Cheaha State Park on Friday, October 1, 2021 from 9am – 4pm.

*You must complete all three components to receive your AWW monitoring certifications.
During the in-person Field Day (10/1/21) of the workshop, participants will head outdoors to conduct Bacteriological and Water Chemistry monitoring practices and visit pre-selected monitoring sites in the Talladega National Forest.
