NH to gather 87 simultaneous river, stream samples

July 16th, 2013 by Lynn

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Volunteers will be dipping bottles into 87 New Hampshire rivers and streams at the same time next week as part of a water sampling project that organizers believe is the first of its kind in the state.

    Plymouth State University assistant hydrology professor Mark Green is leading the project. He says while there is good water quality data around the state, a lot of it was collected at different times. He hopes taking a one-day snapshot will provide a better understanding of the state’s various water resources and how they respond to housing development and other types of land use.

    The samples collected Tuesday will be frozen for storage and sent to a laboratory, which will determine basic measures of water quality.
