The Advanced Water Team Program, supported by the WELL Project (Water and Energy Learning Lab), was developed for interested students to participate in research and monitoring programs on watersheds in our community while at the same time providing our partnering agencies with quality data on creeks and rivers in the region. Currently the high school level teams (grades 9-12) specialize in water quality, in-stream habitat/riparian assessment, well water testing and restoration assessment. Over the past 7 years we have expanded the program to include six middle school (grades 7-8) teams who participate in on-the ground riparian restoration projects.
