The Love the Lea campaign will be hosting another citizen science training day this weekend.


Love the Lea Volunteer Citizen Scientists spend a couple of hours a month carrying out water quality testing on sites throughout the Lower River Lea Catchment. The data volunteer testers collect supports Thames21 in its work to combat pollution and improve the condition of the River Lea.

The Training, which is aimed at both new Water Quality Testers and as a refresher for existing volunteers, will include:

  • An introduction to Thames 21′s ‘Love the Lea’ campaign.
  • Provide an understanding of the fundamentals of urban water pollution.
  • Provide training in the practical skill of using simple test kits for water quality testing.
  • Provide training in the use of Cartographer, Thames21′s on-line database where results can be uploaded and viewed.

The day will also be an opportunity to meet up, share experiences and look at the results of current testing efforts.
