About the event

Come and join the Water Quality team and the River Watchers, August 27th from 1-3pm for the third installment of our salt snapshots, this time in the Asbury/Hampton region. This region is at the heart of the Musconetcong Watershed, with the central location being the Musconetcong Watershed Association's River Resource Center at 10 Maple Ave, Asbury, NJ 08802. Volunteers will meet at the central location for a debrief and supply hand-off before being sent out to sites in the area to grab samples and then return back to the central location for testing.

The purpose of this salt snapshot series is to identify sources of salt intrusion into groundwater throughout the watershed. This is done during normal river-flow conditions, for two reasons: the first is to determine aquatic life's salt exposure for the majority of their time in a stream and second is to identify areas which may be contributing to or preventing salt contamination. By doing this, we can better understand the impact road salt usage has on our ecosystems.

If this sounds like something you want to participate in the sign-up link is here. We are also asking volunteers to bring a tap water sample with them to test for conductivity and chloride of your drinking water!
