Our awesome community volunteers have been out and about monitoring the water quality of streams and creeks in Southwest Virginia as part of a regional water testing program – the Appalachian Citizens Enforcement Project.
We recently found Selenium, a toxic chemical, in a number of local creeks and are concerned that it is damaging stream health.
Our water-testing results for Callahan Creek (which runs through the coal camps of Andover and Stonega), will be presented at a community meeting in Andover on November 25th.
With your help we can ensure that the companies responsible for this pollution clean it up. Come along to this public meeting to find out how you can join a regional network of volunteers protecting the health of our local streams.
