PTRC, in partnership with the Potomac Riverkeeper Network (Citizen Science Volunteer Water Monitoring Program) is now performing water quality testing in the Port Tobacco watershed. This is in a effort to provide reliable weekly water quality data for those who swim, paddle or fish in this tributary of the Potomac River. We test in two locations: near the Port Tobacco Riviera community and at Chapel Point State Park.
Each Friday morning, testing results are posted on the Swim Guide Organization’s website. This organization delivers free up-to-date water quality information for over 8,000 beaches, lakes and rivers throughout the world. The info is also available as a smartphone app.
