Fall 2022 RBV Training- 9/10

2022 RBV (Riffle Bioassessment by Volunteers) Training – Saturday, September 10

 

 

The Stream Riffle Bioassessment by Volunteers program (RBV) is a statewide volunteer water quality monitoring program coordinated by the DEEP Volunteer Water Monitoring Program.  Each fall RBV volunteers participate in a ‘treasure hunt’ to find Connecticut’s healthiest streams. To accomplish this, RBV volunteers are trained to collect macroinvertebrates, or ‘river bugs’ from their local waterways.  Depending on the types of macroinvertebrates that volunteers find in a stream, the CT DEEP can assess it as a healthy stream. 

FRWA will be holding an RBV training session for our volunteers in the beginning of September. The first portion  will consist of a 1-2 hour virtual Zoom session, and the second portion will be held in the field in Canton on Saturday, September 10.
