CRWC'S SALT WATCH VIDEO
 
Even though we had to cancel our Spring Adopt-A-Stream monitoring, we still wanted to share this instructional video we created earlier this year about our new Salt Watch initiative. We added new test supplies to our Adopt-A-Stream volunteer kits to monitor chloride levels in the river at all our sites. This is part of a national effort of the Izaak Walton League of America to monitor the impacts of road salt on rivers across the U.S.
