MONITORING THE CACAPON WITH WATER REPORTER
One way every river lover can help is to participate in our Keep Cacapon Clean campaign. Every year, the spring rains wash tons of plastic, metal and other trash into the Cacapon—and every year, we need to organize trash campaigns. With the Covid-19 crisis, we cannot safely conduct trash removal in groups. So we urge you to use Water Reporter to document areas of the river that have particular trash build-up. We urge you to highlight your own personal trash clean up on Water Reporter.
We will also be using this map to detail water quality monitoring data a six sites along the Cacapon under an agreement with the Cacapon Institute. You can click on individual stations to see current readings and click on each current reading to see data and trends from previous sampling.
