Taos County streams look pretty good after Water Sentinels testing

Water Sentinels — Rios de Taos has resumed its water-testing season. We started with a training session on May 15 attended by 15 volunteers. Our first round of testing began May 19.

Our results show that Taos County streams are looking good, with only a few trouble spots. We are especially interested in keeping track of the Rio Hondo because of large consatruction projects slated by the new owners of Taos Ski Valley.

We Are The Water Sentinels — Rios de Taos

The Water Sentinels—Rios de Taos is a group of Sierra Club volunteers whose primary goal is to monitor the water quality in rivers of Taos County. Sentinels measure water quality components in five streams three times each year and we can do additional testing when someone reports a potential problem. We do have some other goals that may not be so obvious.
