About

The "Stream Team" is a dedicated group of volunteers that gather water quality data throughout the Lower Muskingum River Watershed. Stream Team members are trained by FLMR staff to collect habitat, biological and chemical data. The data collected by these amazing volunteers helps protect the streams in our communities so we may continue to enjoy using our local streams and rivers safely.

Through this invaluable data collection effort FLMR is able to:

  • Establish baseline conditions for waters that would otherwise go unmonitored
  • Track water quality trends over time
  • Screen water for potential problems, for further study or for restoration efforts
  • Help direct pollution control efforts to where they are most needed
  • Evaluate the success of best management practices (BMPs) designed to mitigate problems

Volunteer water monitors build community awareness of pollution problems, help identify and restore problem sites, become advocates for their watersheds and increase the amount of needed water quality information available on our local bodies of water.

Thank you for your interest in supporting a great organization!
