Bat Creek Water Quality Program

As part of the agreement to improve Madisonville’s sewage waste discharge, the Water Quality Improvement Committee of WATeR has been tasked with sampling Bat Creek, which runs through Madisonville to Tellico Lake at Rarity Bay. Volunteers are needed to help with this program as follows:

  • The committee urgently needs someone to establish parameters for flow measurement.
  • The committee also needs volunteers in January to help sample each site using WATeR owned instruments.
  • Volunteers will also be needed starting in March to help when water samples are drawn for laboratory analysis. Training for sampling tasks will be provided.
  • Additionally, the committee needs a data archivist to digitize test results, field notes, and instrument calibration records.
