Another Chance to Paddle for Water Quality With The Town

Another Chance to Paddle for Water Quality With The Town

Join the Town of Wake Forest for water quality testing at the Wake Forest Reservoir on Saturday, Aug. 15, 9 to noon. Bring your own canoe or kayak, or borrow one from the Town (the town only has 20 available so register today if you want to borrow a boat). Participants will meet at the boat ramp, have a land-based water quality education session and then paddle up the reservoir and test various parameters to determine water quality. Boaters will test for nitrogen, phosphorous, turbidity, pH and temperature. Participants will also be able to use new equipment purchased through a 319 grant, including a GPS unit that can measure area, a YSI multi-parameter meter, a turbidity meter and hand-held pH and TDS meters.

This activity is free and open to the public, but reservations must be made for borrowed boats by calling or emailing Holly Spring at (919) 554-3158 or hspring@wakeforestnc.gov. Each participant will be required to sign a waiver form that will be emailed prior to the event. The event lasts approximately 3 hours.
