Reedy Creek: What’s in our stream?
In partnership with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, Reedy Creek Coalition volunteers are monitoring Reedy Creek to collect water quality data. We collect chemical and bacteria data monthly at four sites. We also collect biological data (benthic macroinvertabrates) at one site twice a year. We’ve also been installing equipment to collect physical data such as the height of the stream during storm events, at a few sites.
On the third Saturday of every month, our fearless volunteer teams set out to collect field data and water samples that are analyzed by at Microbac Laboratories.
Check out our data reports to learn what the volunteers have discovered with their monitoring data:
