Coon Creek Watershed District (CCWD) is seeking volunteers for a fun way to get involved in protecting water!
Help monitor levels of chloride (salt) in local waters. Volunteers receive three test strips to measure chloride levels during the winter from street runoff or a nearby waterbody, whichever is safer. The volunteers then report results using the Water Reporter website or phone app. This project is part of the Izaak Walton League of America’s national Salt Watch Program to help identify salt pollution hot spots.
Interested in signing up for the Salt Watch Program? Please contact CCWD Engagement Specialist, Abby Shea at 763-258-7305 or at ASHEA@CoonCreekWD.org.
