BWTF was established with the following objectives:
• to provide concerned citizens with the opportunity for hands-on involvement with an environmental problem solving effort;
• to gather coastal water samples on a regular basis to determine pollution patterns in the near shore environment;
• to raise public awareness regarding the extent and severity of coastal water pollution;
• to use the data collected to bring polluters into compliance;
• to develop a model program that could influence national legislation and enforcement.
Ways To Get Involved With the BWTF:
Become a Water Quality Monitor: Volunteers are trained to become water quality monitors, after training they are sent out in the field with a Watershed Captain to test the water quality of one of our local watersheds. We maintain an ongoing list of volunteers who want to be trained. Becoming a Water Quality Monitor is a serious commitment.
Once you are trained, please drop off water samples to the Pegasus School between the hours of 7:30am-2:00 pm, Monday through Thursday. Please call or email ahead of time to let us know you are coming:
