One of our staff asked the question "as a keen canoeist I am really want the river water quality improved, can we have a community project to get volunteer involvement for basic water testing that I can use to lobby for clean rivers?"
The answer was YES!
At no cost to our team member we have established a simple data collection system, with supplies of pH test strips, for his personal project/mission.
The program is free to join, if you require testing strips they can be obtained from https://www.syproltd.com/communityaction
The objective through volunteers of river users whether swimmers, fishermen, canoeist/kayakers or any other person with an interest in clean rivers to generate huge quantity of data/evidence on the state of our rivers for recreational uses, with a view to lobbying government and the relevant bodies to improve our rivers.
If you are a river user please do join us in this community action project
