Secchi Dip-in encourages citizen monitoring this summer

A monitoring initiative named for Secchi disks encourages people across the world to test the water nearby from the end of June through mid-July. It’s called the Secchi Dip-in and its organizers want anyone with the means to test their local water to do so and report back.  The database is open to contributions from June 29 through July 21.

I was speaking to the audience and they seemed really riveted! I was thinking, ‘I must be giving a really good talk.
