Sligo Creek Water Quality

May Program meeting Tuesday 5/18 7:15 PM
Longbranch Community Center

Hey! How Clean is that Water?Can my kids swim in it? Can my dog drink it? How do we know? What are the next steps for Friends of Sligo Creek?

Ever wonder how clean (or not) the water is in Sligo Creek? Keith Van Ness, Senior Water Quality Specialist for Montgomery County will discuss new water quality information. He will give us the "straight poop" on the Creek water, and tell us how we can make a difference in cleaning it up.

Nette Witgert, Friends of Sligo's new Water Quality Monitoring Coordinator, will join Keith in the discussion. Formerly with the Idaho Fish and Game Agency, Nette is a recent arrival to the watershed and has big plans for getting Friends organized to do our own assessments. Bring your own questions, concerns and ideas!

For questions contact Jim Baird 301-587-3249 / More information is available at .
