Volunteers Needed: Virginia Pipeline Monitoring Training
Join TU For A Special Webinar Training on March 13
Trout Unlimited and the WV Rivers Coalition are hosting a series of webinar trainings to support volunteer citizen scientists to conduct visual assessments to identify potential pollution events associated with pipeline development.
This program will educate landowners, anglers, recreationists and concerned citizens on the erosion control best management practices used in pipeline development, specific examples of pollution incidents and failed erosion controls, and how to properly document these problems.
Join us for a special Virginia Pipeline Visual Assessment Webinar, hosted by Appalachian Voices, will be held on Tuesday March 13 from 7-8:30p.m.
Pollution reports collected by our volunteers undergo an internal review and significant incidents are reported to the responsible regulatory agency.
Using these protocols, TU volunteers have identified and documented failing silt fences, missing erosion controls, slumping hillsides, poorly managed access roads and unsuccessful revegetation efforts along pipeline routes.
