About Salt River Watershed Watch

Salt River Watershed Watch is a group of citizens who monitor streams, rivers and springs in the Salt River Watershed.  

 
If you live or work in one of these counties and are interested in the streams and rivers in your area, Salt River Watershed Watch wants your help!  Click HERE to join.

 
Clean water is important to everyone, for fishing, boating, drinking water supplies and irrigation.  Volunteer monitoring of streams, rivers, lakes and springs is an important way to supplement monitoring conducted by Kentucky Division of Water and other organizations.  Salt River Watershed Watch volunteers collect samples more often and in more places than agencies are able to monitor. 
 
Salt River Watershed Watch monitoring data has been used to make changes that improve water quality!  See the Success Stories page.







Watershed Watch / Salt River Watershed Watch Fundraiser 
The fundraiser for Watershed Watch / Salt River Watershed Watch is active through the end of the year (12/31).  This fundraiser is underway to help raise funds for Watershed Watch in KY and Salt River Watershed Watch.  SRWW will get 75% of the funds we raise, and 25% will go to Watershed Watch in KY, the parent organization.

SRWW received a $4,000 grant from Virginia Environmental Endowment (VEE) that will cover our expenses for 2018.  Funds will be used to pay for testing kits, equipment, replacement chemicals and laboratory costs.  However we need to continue to look for other sources of funding.  If you are interested in helping out, you can donate on line using the Razoo website  https://www.razoo.com/story/Salt-River-Watershed-Watch

If you want to donate by check, please make the check out to WWKY, put Salt River on the memo line and mail the check to:

How does it work?

Salt River Watershed Watch volunteers are trained to collect water quality samples from streams and rivers. 
You do not need a science background or previous experience to become a volunteer monitor!
 
Volunteers receive training and sampling kits free of charge.

 
Volunteers select a river, stream or spring to sample and 
collect samples three times per year: spring, summer and fall. 


Samples are analyzed in a laboratory.  Results are provided to volunteers with an explanation of water quality in their stream.
 
Monitoring results are available on the Resources page.
