Do you have a well on your property?Do you live in Northwest Florida? Interested in volunteering?
A new group called AquiferWatch is looking for volunteers to measure ground-water levels in north Florida. Volunteers will use specialized equipment to take a measurement from their own well once a month. Training for this activity takes no more than one hour.
Data collected for AquiferWatch will supplement groundwater data already collected by the FL Department of Environmental Protection and the NW FL Water Management District. There is much less data from the panhandle than from the peninsula of Florida, so AquiferWatch is turning to volunteers for help.
If you’re interested in volunteering or learning more, please contact Sarah Kalinoski of the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance at 850-517-6843 or email@example.com. She will be coordinating individual on-site training sessions with AquiferWatch once they are able to gauge the level of interest in the NW Florida area.
