Our 19th year of monitoring water quality in the White River starts on Wednesday, May 29. WRP staff and trained volunteers will monitor 3 indicators of water quality at 22 swimming holes every other Wednesday through September 4. Data results are available the Thursday afternoon following each biweekly test date; results for the latest testing date will be posted on our website and on the WRP Facebook page.
To learn more about water quality trends in the White River watershed, read the 4-page 2018 White River Water Quality Report.
Help us improve access to the White River on Sunday, June 9 at 2pm.
The town of Stockbridge acquired the former Gaysville campground property in 2018 and a group of community members has been working with the WRP to identify public access improvement needs at the site. Volunteers should meet at 2pm at the Gaysville Post Office on Bridge Street. Dress to work outside in long pants, long sleeves, and close-toed shoes. The WRP and Stockbridge community members will provide instruction and oversight for the event as well as gloves, tools, and light snacks.
