Lake Watch calls for more water monitoring volunteers
Lake Watch of Lake Martin
Lake Watch of Lake Martin is a citizen-based clean water advocacy group and an Alabama Water Watch (AWW) member/affiliate. We have been collaborating with Lake Martin HOBO and LMRA over the years in efforts to protect and preserve Lake Martin, our Treasured Alabama Lake (TAL). Lake Watch water quality monitors are all AWW-trained and certified according to EPA approved protocols. Our monitors perform testing in Lake Martin and in the Tallapoosa River and selected streams in the Middle Tallapoosa Basin. Over the last two years, testing of streams conducted by Lake Watch in watersheds with significant poultry production in the Middle Tallapoosa River Basin indicate significant bacteria (E. coli) in the tributary streams above Lake Martin – which flow into the Tallapoosa River and then into the lake.
