For the past two years, the District has been a part of the VT Dept. of Environmental Conservation’s LaRosa Water Quality Partnership Program which engages local watershed groups and citizens in water quality monitoring. Through this program District members and local volunteers sample a variety of sites for nitrogen and phosphorus levels. Results from these studies help the state understand water quality conditions across our county and help us identify potentially high impact sites to improve. We have sampled in the Black Creek and Hungerford Brook watersheds as well as the Deer Brook in past years and are currently working to develop goals and a sampling plan for the 2020 season!
