2017 Fall Scott County Snapshot

The 2017 Fall Scott County Snapshot Event will be held October 10th, 8:00 am-12:00 pm at Bettendorf Fire Station, 5002 Crow Creek Rd, Bettendorf 52722

Volunteers are welcome and appreciated.

A brief orientation will begin at 8:00 a.m. at the Bettendorf Fire Station 5002 Crow Creek Rd, Bettendorf 52722. Volunteers will then disperse around the county to sample the water quality of Scott County waterways. Volunteers monitor for transparency, water temperature, pH, Nitrite, Nitrate, Dissolved Oxygen, Phosphate, and Chloride.

The Scott County Snapshot Event engages residents in water quality through a user friendly, process for data collection. Also, the collected data provides a “snapshot” of the water quality in Scott County.
