Please join us in monitoring and protecting the water quality and ecological integrity of Ventura County’s rivers, streams, and coastal waters by becoming a volunteer member of a VCK Stream Team.  In the field, we measure and record river flows, algae, trash, pH, air and water temperature, turbidity, conductivity, water color, water odor, and dissolved oxygen. We also take samples to analyze for bacteria and nutrients in our laboratory.

If you're interested in learning about water quality and participating in sampling / monitoring events, please  email Jason with your name and contact information!
