Partners of Scott County Watersheds is raising money to purchase water quality monitoring kits and a multi-meter needed for our Snapshot events! Our main goal is to acquire the kits, meter sensors, and one year of kit restocking supplies for a total of $10,625.
A YSI ProPlus Multi-parameter Instrument was recently purchased by one of PSCW's partners for PSCW to test water quality in Scott County. This multi-meter will allow PSCW to obtain more accurate measurements on dissolved oxygen, conductivity, specific conductance, salinity, resistivity, total dissolved solids (TDS), pH, ORP, pH/ORP combination, ammonium (ammonia), nitrate, chloride and temperature. We would like to purchase additional sensors and calibrating solution to be used with the meter.
In addition, we are seeking donations to help us send water samples for lab analysis. More accurate data can help us improve the quality of our waters in Scott County!Partners of Scott County Watersheds website
Initial Expenses Include:
10 sampling kits = $2,670
Sensors and Calibrating Solution for the multi-meter = $1030
Materials for Biological Sampling = $300
Subsequent Annual Expenses:
Kit supply restocking = $1,450
Bacteria and nutrient lab analysis = $5175
