The Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association is looking for a volunteer to serve as training coordinator for the organization’s shoreline cyanobacteria monitoring program.
The program has grown significantly over the past four years, with more than 100 trained volunteers monitoring 56 miles of shoreline for Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs). Training activities associated with preparing the volunteers have also grown significantly.
“We would now like to add a training coordinator to our HABs leadership team to help with our training efforts,’’ said SLPWA president Rick Weakland.
“This is a great opportunity to show our support for this very important Seneca Lake program. Training for the coordinator and of volunteer monitors will be in June,’’ Weakland said.
Information collected from volunteer monitoring is compiled and shared via the SLPWA website to keep the public safe. The state Department of Environmental Conservation regards the program as one of the best in the state, Weakland said.
