What does a Sampler do? Samplers are the heart and soul of UCWW. Samplers are responsible for collecting samples, performing some field tests and delivering those samples to a ‘runner.’ Runners are individuals who volunteer to be at a previously designated and conveniently located spot for drop-off of the sample. Runners then transport samples to the testing laboratory within a specific window of time to ensure the validity of test results.
What if you don’t know about sampling or performing field tests? No problem!! UCWW has a training system in place to help. Training seminars are scheduled regularly.
Who can volunteer? Virtually any one can volunteer. Students, teachers, citizens.
Why volunteer? If you have a deep love for the waterways of your community and are willing to pitch in and work hard for their protection!
