Source Water Protection Committee

Kevin Culver

 

groundwater presentation 4-17-13 008 During the April 17 Illinois Rural Water Association Source Water Protection seminar at Kankakee Community College, Kevin Culver (Aqua Illinois Regional Environmental Compliance Manager/ Northeastern Illinois Groundwater Protection Planning Committee vice chairman) explained the Aqua Illinois source water protection display to 60 attendees. John Bevis (Director of Environmental Health for the Kankakee County Health Department), along with a local operator, demonstrate how to collect macro-invertebrates employing River Watch techniques.

 

RiverWatch is a volunteer biological monitoring program currently coordinated by the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center based at Lewis and Clark Community College, Godfrey, Illinois. The primary goal of RiverWatch is to provide consistent high-quality data that can be used to measure how the current conditions of our State’s streams are changing over time and to educate and inform Illinois citizens about the ecology and importance of Illinois water resources. Aqua Illinois has been collecting data for over 10 years at four different locations within the Kankakee River watershed through the RiverWatch program – a key component of their source water protection program.
