Wanted: Water Monitors

Grains of salt de-icer on a road

Coon Creek Watershed District is seeking volunteers to help monitor levels of chloride (salt) in water bodies throughout Coon Rapids.

Volunteers receive four chloride test strips to measure chloride levels in street runoff or a nearby body of water (whichever is more convenient) four times throughout the winter. Volunteers report results using the “Water Reporter” website or app. 

Chloride pollution is a growing problem in Minnesota; just one teaspoon of salt can permanently pollute five gallons of water! Citizen monitors help us find salt pollution “hot spots” which we can then target for salt use optimization projects. 

Interested? Please contact our Outreach Specialist, Britta Dornfeld, at 763-258-7305 or at bdornfeld@cooncreekwd.org.
