Does your neighborhood have drainage, flooding or erosion issues? Have you noticed poor water quality in Terrell Creek, Birch Bay or your local streams and waterways? Take the first step toward solving these issues by monitoring and reporting conditions in your area as a member of the Watershed Watchers Team.
Watershed Watcher volunteers will be trained to monitor conditions on local roadways, ditches, creeks, outfalls, beaches and bluffs and report problems associated with poor drainage, inadequate infrastructure, maintenance needs, pollution, illegal dumping, and/or indicators of bluff failure. Proactive monitoring before and after large precipitation events will help us identify:
Year-round residents of Birch Bay who live in areas with frequent drainage issues are strongly encouraged to participate. Reporting is easy! Take a photo, make some notes and submit via mail, email or our mobile app. The information collected will help improve infrastructure and best management practices that keep our water clean and roadways safe! No prior monitoring experience necessary.
Join us for a training event on September 27th at Birch Bay Bible Community Church from 5:30-7:30pm. A summary of 2017-18 accomplishments and volunteer efforts will be recognized. Event participants will receive a professional grade rain gauge for attending.
