Water Quality Monitoring

SEEKING VOLUNTEERS FOR MONTHLY MONITORING

Once a month, early on a Sunday morning, citizen scientists head out to sites along the Assabet, Sudbury, and Concord Rivers to collect water samples, measure pH, temperature and record river conditions. The data and analyses enable OARS, municipalities, environmental agencies, and others to improve management of our waterways.

Volunteers are fully trained by OARS staff and all equipment is provided. Training dates for new and returning volunteers:

  • Sunday, May 5th, 8:30am in Acton
  • Wednesday, May 8th, 7:00pm in Hudson
  • Saturday, May 11th, 8:30am in Wayland at the Rt. 20 boat launch
  • directions to all sites

This is your chance to make a real difference. Join our group of dedicated citizen scientists working to monitor and improve the water quality of our three rivers and their tributaries. To volunteer please email us
