The group that checks on the water quality of the Annapolis River, Clean Annapolis River Project, is looking for a dedicated volunteer to help monitor the health of the tiver in Wilmot as part of the Annapolis River Guardians program.
The Annapolis River Guardians Program is a volunteer water quality monitoring initiative and CARP’s longest-running program. It has been in place since 1992 and more than 100 volunteers have participated in the program since it began. Water is sampled every second Sunday from spring to autumn to gauge the health of the river, using measurements such as dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, and E. coli counts.
CARP keeps an ongoing record of all water quality data measured by the river guardians program. This data is used to assess and identify problems, track changes in the river’s health, and keep the public informed and engaged in restoration activities.
Anyone interested in becoming a river guardian for Wilmot, or would like more information, please contact Levi at firstname.lastname@example.org, call 532-7533 or visit CARP’s website at www.annapolisriver.ca.
