Columbus Co. Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Volunteers will be assigned to specific locations along the Waccamaw River to collect water quality data. The specific locations are essential in covering all 1,480 miles of the winding river in and through Columbus County.

Volunteers will assess water quality conditions and track changes over time and space. Volunteers will be trained in using environmental testing equipment to sample selected sites within the assigned watershed.

Volunteers work as part of a team under the leadership of the team captain. Assistance is provided by the Waccamaw RIVERKEEPER and Lake Waccamaw State Park staff who will ensure that all quality assurance and quality control procedures are being followed in accordance with the guidelines provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA).
