September 22 @ 9:30 am – 2:30 pm
Learn about water quality testing with the scientists of Blue Water Baltimore! An Outfall Screening Blitz consists of taking teams of volunteers into our local streams to sample water quality. The events take place 48 hours after a major rain event to ensure stormwater is not being sampled. Samples will be collected from streams being monitored where dry weather flow is coming from a stormwater outfall. If an outfall screening blitz is rained out, this event will transition into a stream walk. We will discuss different types of pollution, how it is entering our waterways and steps you can take to help report and prevent pollution from happening. This event is limited to five volunteers per scientist, and locations will be determined prior to the event based on accessibility and weather.
