Please still collect your samples in March. 
Our only change due to the University shutdown is that we are unable to have volunteers in the lab. Staff from Miami University, Butler County Stormwater District, and Butler Soil and Water Conservation District will process all of the stream team samples.


Butler County Stream Team is a citizen science group that collects, analyzes, and reports water quality data from many waterways in Butler County.

The Stream Team exists through the collaborative effort of Butler County resident volunteers, the Institute for the Environment and Sustainability at Miami University, the Butler County Storm Water District, and the Butler Soil and Water Conservation District.
