2022 New Monitor and Recertification
We had a very successful summer training over 60 new monitors and recertifying many other, all in-person. This summer we again partnered with the Maine DEP to recertify dozens of volunteers around the state. We appreciate the travel as well as all of the work our volunteers perform. A special thank you to the local boat hosts who volunteer their time and gas, and enable us to perform regional trainings in addition to the training on Lake Auburn. The boat host program is vital to the success of ensuring all volunteers have the ability to become recertified.
For New Water Quality Monitors
For both new Secchi Water Transparency Monitors and new Secchi Water Transparency & Dissolved Oxygen Monitors, if you are interested in getting involved, please contact us using the form on this page. We offer many workshop sessions including some that may be in your area.
If you are interested in becoming a DO monitor, you must own or have access to a meter. That meter must also be certified. We send out information about annual certification of meters — our Meterfest event — starting every March.
It is highly recommended that if there is a monitor currently on your waterbody that you go out with them to see what the experience is like.
For Existing Water Quality Monitors
Thank you for another fantastic summer WQ monitors! Please remember to postmark all datasheets from 2022 summer to us by November 1st. If you have any questions, please contact us.
