Water Collection Kits

Student collecting a water sample.A water collection kit.For members of the community interested in collecting water from their local streams and lakes for analysis by our environmental laboratory at the College of William and Mary, we will provide the sampling bottles for water collection. Although we plan to continue sampling our established 23 stations every three months, we are interested in completing analyses on "spot samples" collected in the community from other aquatic locations and/or other times. See our watershed map to determine whether the stream, lake or pond near your home is part of our water quality survey. The more samples we analyze, the broader our network and the better our knowledge of water quality will be! Contact us if you would like sample bottles for collecting water for analysis.
