TLGV RBV supplemental materials


Thank you for your support of The Last Green Valley Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring Program.  Below are links to the materials volunteers were provided during the annual training event, either in the slide show program or in a handout packet.  Data sheets, voucher labels and the official DEEP training slide show can be found on the DEEP RBV webpage. 

Due to the lack of rain, volunteers should avoid sampling in first order streams this 2014 season.  Second order streams can be sampled as long as it seems the flow was uninterrupted.  Please stay to the deepest parts of the stream channel, as those areas are least likely to have been dried up.

2014 Guidelines for Where should I sample?

Stream Names by Town with MMI scores (the higher the number, the better the sampling location for "Most Wanted Bugs").

Stream names by Town with Stream Order and Road Crossings.  These sites were not reviewed for riffle environments, so please confirm prior to bringing the sampling team to the site.  Start with second order streams, then cross reference for the highest MMI rating for best results. 

Maps by town.  Streams in yellow are priority sampling sites.  Some towns have road crossings noted by a star, others have not been completed.  There may be more than one road crossing on the same stream, so look for the safest access and best riffle environment when selecting a monitoring site. Stream names were not highlighted on all maps.
