Water Wednesday ‘Summer Sampling’

Summer stream sampling has begun! During summer months, the Watershed Committee of the Ozarks collaborates with Springfield-Greene County Health Department to collect voluntary weekly bacteria samples in five local streams that are popular recreation areas for swimming, fishing and floating. The sample collection is not required and is provided as a community service. Samples will be collected from May 25th to August 29th. The weekly results can be found on the health department’s webpage here: http://health.springfieldmo.gov/2934/Stream-Testing
