Be a Good Neighbor: Help Keep the Water Clean

Clean water benefits everyone.  Here is a list of what you can do to help the water quality in Scott County:
  • Volunteer for Citizen Water Quality Monitoring.  Since 2006, the Scott WMO has sponsored a citizen water quality monitoring program to monitor its lakes and streams.  We are always looking for volunteers to fill in, as people’s spare time becomes unavailable from year to year.  If interested in becoming a water quality monitor contact Becky Groshens, Water Resources Technician.

  • Volunteer for zebra mussel monitoring.  Spring of 2017, Scott WMO started a program to monitor monthly for zebra mussels on major lakes in Scott County.  We know Upper and Lower Prior Lakes both have zebra mussels.  Once in a lake they are very costly to remove--both environmentally and economically.  We have just started the program and currently have volunteers.  However, if you are interested in becoming a back up for our volunteers, please contact Becky Groshens.
